Mulberry resist



This is a piece of mulberry paper with images stamped in versamark and embossed. I sprayed using colour sprays and then ironed between two pieces of paper to give this beautiful resist effect. One thing I learnt is that if this sheet sticks to the paper above don't panic, keep ironing and it eventually peels away. I used my encaustic iron which is probably not as hot as a proper iron. I saw this technique on Sweetpea's blog in her background book.

These colors are to die for! This also works very well on silk--I have made a lot of silk scarves using this technique.

Cheers!
