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.
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!
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.
