The goal was to experiment with deconstructed screens and I had a whole pile of them ready to go... but alas I forgot them at home = DUH! No worries we had fun with other techniques.
|Here we sprinkled dye powder on the fabric and pulled print paste across.|
|Here Barb is showing me how to use a foam roller and wooden blocks for a cool print!|
|The roller needs to be really saturated to get a strong print.|
|Barb said she got the roller at Home Depot!|
|Barb is pulling the print paste across the screen. Deconstructing screens means with each print the screen slowly releases the design until it's all gone!|
|It's a time consuming technique due to creating the screens first and allowing the thickened dye to dry... but the results are so fun!|
|When got home I got busy with the print paste and screens - here are my results!|
|This piece had too much empty white space for my taste. I decided to paint a light wash across the surface which made the overall design feel more substantial.|
Any time spent sharing ideas and experimenting with a friend is priceless - but don't forget your supplies!
