    This makes so much sense when you explain it! I have been getting bleeding in my experimental prints but I was using fresh leaves.I was wondering what on earth I was doing to cause this. Thank you!!!! Can’t wait to do the rest of the course with you. Just a wee excited!

      How long have you been soaking the leaves for? And what sort are they? Usually when leaves are breaking apart they have soaked for too long- for some species this can even be after a few days like with herb robert, while other leaves can be soaked for a month or more, no problem.

      It’s more to do with the leaf type than the amount of water. You probably have quite different rose varieties growing up there. I’d suggest trying to eco-print with them fresh and seeing how they come out. I’m looking forward to seeing your results with the teak leaves
