Mariana has submited three of the latest rust prints on paper.

These small art prints, are part of a series exploring natural dyes and rust on Somerset paper.

These rust prints were made using found objects and red cabbage natural dyes on Somerset paper – this is Marianas favourite paper, it is sturdy and allows for experimentation without breaking appart and it keeps the colours vivid – this is essential for her printmaking work.
