Lilian Nichols tells us to never throw away scraps. It is possible to use even the most ugly scraps. This scrap isn't even ugly. It will make a nice simple leaf.
A simple leaf is my end goal.
I decided to start from the beginning on another green tones bull's eye so you can see the whole process. This is Part One.
I started with two entire squares of Green Premo.
I rolled out one square, then ran it through the pasta maker until it was soft and pliable. I used the thickest setting. Then I laid a small piece of Cadmium red on it.
I ran the sheet through the pasta maker, folding it and rerunning it through until the red was well mixed into the green.
The green I made was very, very dark. I could have used half the red that I did use.
I sliced off a rectangle of the green and of the dark green.
When I mixed them thoroughly using the pasta maker, I had another green, the one on the left.
The green was still quite dark so I mixed two parts pure green to one part dark green and this is the second of the four greens below.
