As well as the other types of screen printing I did some with straightforward newspaper stencils.
When we were in France in the summer, I took some photos of people walking by, and I used a couple of these as the basis for my designs.
I had manipulated these with a view to using them as Gocco images and these are the resulting photos.
I cut the outlines out of a sheet of newspaper and used that as a stencil. After I had printed that, I laid the dyed-covered stencil face down on the fabric and screened with another colour. I did this until the newspaper tore and I couldn’t use it again. I love the way the newspaper wrinkled and gave such atmospheric texture. Here are the results:
These are on calico, which takes the prints really well.
This is on scrim or similar fabric – the images are a lot clearer than you can tell in the photograph.
