I continue to learn from Eco Colour so was pretty pleased to get my hands on the eucalyptus and try eco printing with a plant that has an important place in the book and is otherwise a bit elusive where I live. This gifted bunch of leaves makes a nice fawn, pink, almost orange on silk and yellower colours on cotton (not pictured). My favourite is the 'flying eucalyptus' print above.
The long leaf in the photo below was collected years ago. It was completely dry when I rolled it up in the bundle and yet it didn't crack and still coloured the fabric. And of course the steaming bundles smelled great.
