Crows for Mo

By special request for Mo Crow, here are two crow prints, recently unearthed when my friend came over to help me sort out the disaster area otherwise known as my back bedroom (thanks M).

Both of these are mordant prints on recycled fabric, dyed with plant dyes. I’m assuming eucalypts of some sort but it was a while ago.

This is quite a pale print and I’m thinking that the fabric may be rayon, rather than cotton or linen which seem to work much better with this process.

This chap was printed onto fine linen and has come up much darker than the previous sample.

These pieces are still waiting to find their purpose in my work, but in the meantime I’m happy to just admire them.
