OOAK Eco print made with grape leaves, complete with curlicues. The amber hue of the full-size photo shows the print in natural sunlight. The closeups were made with less light and are more gray than the print really is.
Prints with the same type of leaves may look similar, but the nature of this eco printing process means that prints cannot be duplicated. Like snowflakes, every leaf is a little bit different than the next. The time of year the leaf was collected, the type of soil where the plant was growing, minerals in the water bath when it was steamed, the type of mordant used (if any), and the other leaves in the dyebath all affect the results of the prints. There seems to be some personal magic in the mix, as well; some eco printers have noted that their prints tend to reflect their mood when they placed the leaves. With all the variables, about one in twenty prints I create is suitable for framing.
