Description

Discover how to use found natural materials – such as leaves, flowers, feathers, vegetables, fruits, shells, weeds, and wood grain – to print on any surface, from paper and fabric to ceramics, wood, and walls. Simple step-by-step instructions coupled with beautiful photos make it easy and fun to learn the basic techniques. 

Imagine shower invitations featuring delicate herbal prints – or a huge room divider screen printed with tall, billowy marsh grasses, flowing water patterns, and fish. Try making one-of-a-kind home furnishings, such as a clothes hamper printed with scallop shells, a footstool printed with cinnamon sticks, or a lampshade printed with willow leaves on bark paper. Or make one-of-a-kind wearables, like an apron printed with sage or a shirt printed with striking geometric shapes cut from maple leaves. There’s something here for every inventive crafter.
