This is Matilda - my original project kitten - who is "helping" me with tea dyeing watercolor paper for an online journal class I'm taking. Carole Brungar, aka kiwicarole from NZ has a class using paper and fabric and transfers that you can find out more about on her blog post HERE. I had to spread out my paper to dry throughout my kitchen one night after work this week. And yes, I do have cat footprints on it now! I think they'll make a nice artistic element, don't you?
Next up is Metzger, who pretty much gets away with anything, but as you can see, has a different way of "helping". He participated in the walnut ink experiments using glass rims and salt. I did manage to save my bowl of walnut ink before he dunked his foot in it!
After everything dried, I came away with some pretty interesting backgrounds. The top photo is using Red Zinger tea and the second is using walnut ink and salt. Moral of the story? Next time I'm going to wait for daylight and work outside!!!!!!!!!!
