Taking a saw to pages of a book is not something for everyone. Neither is using an iron on wet dye and hearing it sizzle but what an adventure. I also like the furry edges of the paper. The heated bubbles produce some amazing patterns. There is no firm result for the outcome. That's the mystery of this process. You never know what you’re going to get.
In the photos below I have drawn around images that I see on the pages.
I have 2 irons for this process as they have different patterns on the base.
My iron has become a friend for the first time in my life. Oh! And the dye bottle.
