    Just finished this piece using a variety of real flowers you pound on to fabric to release the natural dyes in the leaves and petals. Lots of fun as a group project just need earplugs for the banging.

    That really is beautiful! I'd love to try this, off to google! Bet it's really cathartic too, pounding the bejeepers out of some poor innocent flowers! LOL

    Choose flowers and leaves that lay flat-use pre-treated for dying fabric. Make an arrangement and put masking tape over the parts. Hammer the heck out of it on a cutting board or wood surface. The flower juice should stain easily. Let dry. You can heat set up it may change the colors. This is not highly washable project. Several book out with detailed instructions, check the library. Have fun. Moosegirl

    Oh forgot to tell you to take the masking tape off as soon as you complete the hammering or it will ruin the piece. Moosegirl
