This week our Paper Arts group at the Guild are exploring flower pounding so I thought I had better do some samples seeing as I was the one demonstrating it.
I have used cheap watercolour paper 280gsm weight that I purchased from the local dollar shop.
I arranged the flowers and grasses between the paper and using a rubber mallet I pounded on the paper so that the colour transferred to the paper.
The flowers are Dandylions from the neighbours lawn and some grasses.
This has a watercolour painted look about it.
I think it would look lovely on fabric and then it could be stitched.
The second one has red Grevillea flowers at the top (they are the purple coloured ones) also some yellow Fuschias and more grasses.
