Deconstructing the screens

Pre-treated cotton


Two
Thickened print paste


Three
Dried screens ready to go


Wetted with print paste





I had forgotten that the screen below had hot wax shapes on it but I used thickened dye to prep it.

Prints








First pass below


Finished cloth

















As you can see below, I printed the screen sideways by mistake





I just wish they could maintain that vibrant color

  1. I'm with you on wishing the vibrant colors would survive the washout. I like bright!

  3. More, aaaahhh, the colors!! You make me think of my childhood images of Santa's elves in their workshops...the old fashioned ones who made everything by hand...
