Rich & Juicy

Been doing some botanical transfer prints with my Design 1 students.  Their results were pretty good...never less than interesting.  For myself, it yielded my best prints yet.

The pink is from fresh beets, but it faded dramatically after drying.

Above, preparing a piece of silk.  Below, a very full pot of soup (brake disc for scale).  I had to keep ladling juice out the whole time it percolated.

I have no idea where the green came from (below).

Such juicy results.  The more rusty metal in the pot, the better...more of everything really.
