Okra Flower Printing

Okra is one of the few crops that seems to be thriving in this part of the world these days.  (rotten Texas drought this summer).  We bought some at the farmer's market and enjoyed part of them fried with cornmeal.  Then today had fun using it to print floral wrapping paper.

We discovered that the flowers show best if you don't use too much paint and you press down firmly, and that it's also pretty to mix colors.
