I liked the actual image but I didn’t like the white between the screen printing. I still had not washed out the wax in the screen since that class, so while I was playing with dyes a week ago, I did a little more screen printing. I cut up the piece of material that I covered my board used in that class. It had several streaks of color on it where the screen printing had bled through, but I figured since I was just playing it didn’t matter. Instead of lining the screen up on the fabric, I just printed and over printed. And I love the result!
Here it is:
Here is a closeup.
Dave said the pattern would make a great apron. (I know – he’s always thinking about cooking.) However, I cleaned my screen. What was I thinking? I could have overprinted on the other fabric, or even printed on some canvas for an apron, but too late now.
That Saturday I also played with a couple other dyeing techniques that I’ll share soon. But I definitely will revisit screen printing when things slow down here.
