Latest Screenprinting

Here are some more of the fabrics I’ve been adding colour to.  Haven’t taken any out yet, that’s waiting for a nice dry day for good ventilation and a bit of spare time to do it!

I love this screen.  Not sure if this is going to be horizontal or vertical yet.  I printed it a very pale grey first and this is the second layer.

This is the same screen using different colours. 

green screenprinted fabric 

This fabric is the one I printed with the very dense diagonal lines in green (the more yellowy green sections).  I used soy wax as a resist and screened using a thermofax screen over the rest in turquoise.

This is the reverse, which is quite good too!

blue screenprinted fabric overprinted

This is the blue fabric I started and posted a few weeks ago.  Again I used soy wax as a resist to keep the blue and screened using the larger screen of the same design in a browny-orange colour.

For the top part of this one I ran the linen yarn (from the previous post) between lines of pins across the fabric and then screened with a blank screen (I got this from Leslie Morgan and Claire Benn’s book, Screenprinting).  I’m referring to it a lot, as well as their Thermofax Printing book.  The two side pieces were prints taken from the middle one as it was a bit gloopy.

I screened this one with a blank screen on to crumpled fabric, uncrumpled it and screened some more.  That was another from the Screenprinting book.

More later!
