Flower Pounding

Well , there is a new craze around, its called Flower Pounding and its great fun, I book the book at the Nantes expo and went to stay with my great friend Wendy, near Toulouse and we both had a great time Flower Pounding, its just collecting fresh petals from the garden and laying them on to calico or silk and covering either with more calico or masking tape and using a wooden mallet, pounding the petals until the dye comes into the fabric, it give the shape of the petal and the colours are gorgeous, leaves are brilliant too. Well worth a try!
