Here we go again. Taking the boiled book package out of the pot. Can hardly wait to see what's inside but waited to let it cool and sit overnight.
Look how black the water in the pot turned. Perhaps because I used some leaves from black oak tree?
Here is a packet, note the wires are now rusted. Hmmm... hadn't thought of that.
I expect these will dry lighter. Will know later.
I'm pressing some of these cooked leaves. Not sure how that can work with boiled leaves, but worth a try. Would like to use some in the books.
These photos are from one of the two packets. The other one I opened in the studio last night. I'll show pics from that in next post. I wanted to see if it made a difference to leave things stacked overnight. I'll know later. I guess I should let them all dry before comparing.
