Natural Elements

Natural Elements is a series of monoprints on acid free paper using the ecoprint process. These one-of-a-kind monoprints are created by steaming leaves and other organic materials against paper. The impressions left on the paper are from the pigments released by the leaves. This unique printing technique has been championed on both cloth and paper by India Flint. I have enhanced some of the monoprints using vinegar elixirs of iron and copper. Due to the natural nature of this process some pigments may fade in time and some may actually darken.
