    What was this piece of fabric mordanted with? I notice the lovely reddish brown leaves. I’ve so far only mordanted with iron and am almost exclusively getting blue prints (except with cinerea leaves which produce a deep orange).

      Hi Adriana, this was mordanted with iron again. The general rule is leaves that print orange or red on wool will print brown on iro-mordanted cotton, and leaves that print tan or very pale yellow on wool will print blue or sometimes green on iron-mordanted cotton. The ones that print brown on cotton tend to be silvery blue leaves like the cinerea, or other lighter, slightly ‘milky’ green leaves. The blue prints are more common, I have to travel to get leaves that print brown on cotton!
