Botanical Inks by Babs Behan | Hardie Grant Publishing

Botanical Inks Plant-to-Print Dyes, Techniques and Projects


Learn how to transform foraged wild plants, plants, garden produce, and recycled food into dyes and inks with Botanical Inks. The book shows you how to extract environmentally sustainable color from the landscape and use it to create natural dyes for textiles, clothing, paper, and other materials.
 
Botanical Inks covers dyeing and surface application techniques, including bundle dyeing, Shibori tie-dyeing, hapazome, indigo sugar vat dyeing, wood-block printing, screen printing, and more. And it also shows you how to turn your new inks, dyes, and technique knowledge into wonderful projects, from a simple bundle-dyed a scarf to a block-printed tote bag.
