      Yes, I put some scrap fabric inside the top just to mask the front and back from each other because it was a very thin cotton and I didn’t want the prints to bleed through. I do this sometimes when working with thin fabric.

      I mostly put my leaves on a dry cloth, because I am usually working with an iron mordant and don’t want to touch the wet cloth with my hands or to wear gloves. And then with soy, I have already dried the fabric and left it to cure. So I just use it as it is. Some people wet their fabric before eco-printing, because they steam their bundles and need to make sure that the bundles are completely wet. But when boiling bundles, you don’t have to worry about that. I have been using some wet dye blankets and iron blankets lately and wondering if fabric is easily to roll when wet, but I’m not certain either way.
