Stitching on Coccoloba uvifera aka Sea Grape leaves continues to fascinate me. Stitching for stitching sake. Here are a few from this week and a crystal twist. see below...
As soon as I saw her post I scurried to the laundry, snatched the box of 20 Mule Team Borax, set the tea pot on heat and made a solution in which crystals are sure to grow
And why on not a stitched leaf?
Borax and water. Use 3 tablespoons of borax for each cup of water.
EXCERPT from Catherine's blog:
- Use a glass or porcelain container large enough to immerse whatever object you want to crystallize.
- Boil water, and make a super saturated solution in your container using 1 cup boiled water per 3 tablespoons Borax.
- Immerse object and wait for crystals to grow.
- When you think it's crystallized enough, remove from solution and dry on drying rack.
