Tea Washes, works in progress by Amy Crook

Tea Washes, works in progress by Amy Crook

In the spirit of exploration, and because it’s something I drink nearly every day, I decided to make up a very strong little cup of tea and experiment with using it as a wash. I used two different kinds of paper, and only added salt to one of the pieces, over-wetting the other two so they could air dry overnight into interesting patterns. Once I see how I like the effect, perhaps I’ll try a few more.

I’ve also left the tea, which you can see in its little dish on the right, to strengthen overnight so I can do a few more experiments.
