Leaves in watercolor. I think they are breathtaking. The "wows" at the reveal were the best part. #naturecrafts #leafprint #watercolor

Oh my goodness. We've been having fun with our nature head printables again (they're free on the blog). The little little ones love creating with grass and leaves at the moment although spring is almost here so they'll be flowers galore soon. Eeeeee! I can already see buds on some of the natives in the backyard!!! 🌹

'They're getting married' by teenage girl!

Dyeing silks with Golden Yarrow: 🌼 - add a handful of fresh Golden Yarrow to the pot
🌼 - cover with rain water
🌼 - simmer on low for an hour 🌼 - let cool then add silks
🌼 - bring up to temperature and simmer on low for another hour.
I let my silks cool with the dye bath, then ring them out and hang them to dry BEFORE rinsing them 🌼

Mordant your silks first if you want a more permanent color. I don't think this step is necessary for play silks, because they don't really get washed, but we used silks that I had already pre-mordanted a while back...

Feathers go well with gold as well ☀️
They tell an an old story from the past when feathers were as valuable as precious metals. 😍
"Fifteen hundred years ago, artists of Peru’s Nasca culture painstakingly knotted thousands of imported tropical feathers to strings, layering them thickly to create an exceptionally plush, luxurious garment of great power. For the Aztecs, who flourished in the lands that are now Mexico and Guatemala, feather-working was considered a higher status occupation than gold-working, and the rarest feathers, including the iridescent green feathers of the quetzal bird, were reserved for the Aztec emperor himself."
And they really do bring a feeling of lushness and luxury 👌

Squirrel tail earring and friends.
Earring made from a squirrel tail I found on a walk and saved from the hungry slugs.

The Hakea I've collected for our Bush Skills Home Ed session has started to drop some seeds. It's a beautiful flowering native, we may have to plant some!
Kate Hubmayer's great little book, "Nature Crafts for Aussie Kids" has a brief and simple description of a range of native trees as well as clear images to help you identify them.
We start next week and you can still book in - thefoxguild.bigcartel.com
