Then today I had the job of emptying out my suitcase and cleaning up and putting away. Well I got everything shipshape and then I began sorting through my samples. I found a couple that needed another layer or a stamp or two. I thought to myself, "I'll just do a couple of prints....."
Two hours and several BBC Documentary podcasts later I finally stopped myself! It is seriously addictive stuff, people, and I don't know whether to urge you to give it a try or warn you off ever starting.
Here are some of my favourites:
|Background is a gelliplate mono print, albatross is screen printed.|
|The black shapes were screen-printed first and then the colours monoprinted on top.|
|Monoprints, stamps and screen-prints.|
|A 'ghost' monoprint (a second, lighter print from the one paint spread), an albatross screen print and the rings were stamped.|
So if you think you are interested in fabric printing, just go find a youtube tutorial and jump in and have a go! Of course, if you are in New Zealand, I could always come and run a workshop in your area - just email me!
