More Tea Bags

I have dyed some more tea bags

And I am even more impressed with this lot

This time I brushed the leaves

with egg white

before clamping them
This has given me much greater colour in the centres
And these have all been washed
and ironed!!!
Can't wait to try egg yolk
to see what difference it makes

Beautiful! I had some fun with tea bags last year, painting and sewing and making a little book, and want to do more. I got such great satisfaction in making something beautiful from something that normally gets thrown into the compost (or worse, the bin!)

I'd love to see how these gems are transformed into another work of art, tho' each is a complete little work in itself.
