A little while ago, Raynbow and I were lucky enough to go on an artistic adventure to a place of magic and creativity. Find more information about Winter Craft School here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Winter-Craft-School/163080720533888
Our first cloth was produced using torn news print, placed in a pattern directly on the cloth, using the screen size as the guideline.
The screen is placed over the design and the paint is forced through the screen, using a squeegee (a flat flexible paddle, like the ones used for grouting) the places where the newsprint pattern were, are white and the paint is in the spaces between.
Here are our first two cloths:
Have a look at the process here – you can see the screen with the vine in the top left of the picture, along with the squeegee resting on the newspaper.
I thoroughly enjoyed this course and have subsequently bought a screen of my own and some paint. I am busy with my first design ideas and will be sharing my first solo printed project soon 🙂
