Natural Eco-printing makes the most amazing prints and colors using natural elements. It is
harmless to our planet. Now I’ll show you how to achieve those beautiful prints on your
• First of all search and choose the leaves or flowers you like. The ones left any marks
on the ground will definitely give a strong print. It’s better to harvest after a few sunny
days. Leaves usually lose their strength in color after the rain, because they are more
diluted by water.
• Choose your fabric. I recommend you to start with silk or wool as they take the dye
much easier.
• Next step is to place your plants anywhere you want on your garment and make a
tight bundle.
• Now you can steam or boil it. Try both methods. They will give you different results.
The duration ranges about 30 minutes to 6 hours, depending on which plants are
used. Don’t overcook. Colors from some plants can start disappearing if you leave it
for too long. So check on it regularly and don’t forget to add more water if necessary.
• Take the fabric out and let it cool down and dry. This will allow for a stronger print.
Time really matters when it comes to eco-printing. This part of the process is always
very exciting.
• Let your fabric hang in the shade and dry completely before rinsing. You don’t have to
rinse at all if you don’t want to. Quite often, it will smell really good and you can just
wear it straight away.
25. The purpose of writing the text is to ….

A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes directly behind the earth and into its shadow.
This can occur only when the sun, earth, and moon are aligned, with earth between the other two. A
lunar eclipse can occur only on the night of a full moon. The type and length of a lunar eclipse depend
on the moon's closeness to either node of its orbit.
During a total lunar eclipse, earth completely blocks direct sunlight from reaching the moon.
The only light reflected from the lunar surface has been refracted by earth's atmosphere. This light
appears reddish for the same reason that a sunset or sunrise does. Due to this reddish color, a totally
eclipsed moon is sometimes called a blood moon.
Unlike a solar eclipse, a lunar eclipse may be viewed from anywhere on the night side of
earth. A total lunar eclipse can last up to nearly 2 hours. However, a total solar eclipse lasts only up to
a few minutes at any given place, due to the smaller size of the moon's shadow. Also unlike solar
