I wish I had twice as much time in every day. I never have enough. So, invariably, things I intend to do take longer than I expect.
I have had a series of ready made screeen prints on the drawing board for a long time. I ordered the raw materials I needed about three months ago, and I finally got everything in the last week. I have ten ‘textures’ ready to go with ten ‘botanicals’ still in progress. Last night I burned about 100 screens. Today I made some samples. Here are a couple of photos of my two favourites.
I used Lumiere Paints on all of the samples over one of my hand painted fabrics.
I think the “Matchsticks” are really cool and will be using these a lot.
Here I ‘screened’ Matchsticks once with the dark blue and then threw some Citrene over the blue, so I got a blend of the two colours during the second ‘screen’.
This is matchsticks repeated about 6 times with different coloured paint. Love it. What do you think.
