My latest watercolor pages. They have a very dark quality to them – because I added three coffee plugs to the water. I think three plugs is probably too many because it will be difficult to write on these pages in a journal – but I do like the effect. Next I may try tea or perhaps only one coffee plug.
This batch I did in the oven as I have returned the neighbor’s crock pot. I put my bundles in a cake pan, poured boiling water over them, added coffee plugs, weighed them down with a brick and a steel plate, let them cook at about 200C for an hour, let them cool, drained them and then opened the package the next morning.
I love some of the imprints that the flowers and leaves made. (Click on image to start slideshow and see a larger picture.)
