After steaming, the silk, iron blanket, and paper
Wet silk: background is cochineal only, foreground is eco-printed over cochineal dye. The iron and the natural dye colors present in the leaves have dulled the color.
After drying and ironing. Each leaf has its own natural dye. Some don't print at all on undyed silk, but every single leaf had some effect on the cochineal, dispersing or tinting the fuschia.
Alianthis Altissima (Stinking Sumac, or Tree of Heaven)
