Dandelion Emulsion – Taraxacum
Dandelion is such useful plant. Salads, juice and even wine can be made from its flower and leaves.
- Mashed up about 20-30 heads (including the green parts) in mortar and squeeze the brown coloured juice through a cloth.
- Then with a brush paint sheet with the Dandelion emulsion onto paper.
- Let the papers dry in a dark place before use.
- Place in the sun for 2-4 days
For the result I need to wait a few weeks if the Dandelion emulsion produces a print.
