Eco Print Card Zinnia
- Handmade in Western Melbourne by artist Stephen Parslow
- Creating beauty from nature, each card is 100% original & unique.
- Everything he uses is natural so there is no carbon footprint.
Eco printing is an art like no other, using chemistry to produce a beautiful print.
Stephen prepares solutions of vinegar and water in separate containers. In one container rust is introduced by way of anything rusty such as old nails.
Absorbent paper is dipped in the clear solution and flowers, leaves, or any flat greenery found in Stephen's garden are dipped in the rusty solution.
Stacking the layers and repeating the process before the cards are steamed.
The best part is taking the stack apart, that’s when the magic happens.
Once the artwork is dry and ironed, Stephen puts the cards together by hand.
