Kozo (Paper Mulberry) tree camouflage
( Sandwitch notebook holders) :
Kozo tree is a shrub that is a raw material of washi paper.
The tree grows everywhere with their strong life force.
I found it in my neighborhood when I was looking for something to take pictures.
The shape of the leaves were ragged and jagged.
I took a picture with the sky behind them.
I placed the Iphone under the branches with the lens facing up towards the sky and took some photos.
I thought that it would be nice if I could get some good shots.
As a result the sun was shining between the branches and the shape of the leaves was also good.
I then Printed the photos out on OHP film and Japanese calligraphy paper.
I sprinkled wax on the paper and melted it with an iron. It made the paper partially translucent.
I seasoned with cheesecloth and absorbent cotton.
The cheesecloth erased the glitter of the film, it is cool, the cotton looked like the light.
It feels like sleeping in the shade.
