What do you give somebody for their birthday, when they say they want nothing?!
Jeph, my partner, is a musician…… he makes music out of field recordings and natural objects.
Some of them turned out…. others didn’t. I read that you should soak paper for 1/2 an hour in vinegar before placing your leaves on them. But the first two batches seemed blurry…. like the extra moisture in the paper sucked the pigments into the surrounding area. So I soaked the last batch for less time. Some of the leaves made good prints, some I ‘played’ with a bit too much, and the first batch (which I didn’t photograph) were just plain boring. Oh…. tried making another batch of 12 today…. and the leaves left no prints at all 😦
