This is a piece of heavy cotton, underpainted a couple weeks ago, overprinted today with a glue gel screen I made recently. I've gotten a lot of mileage out of this screen...after my first use, in which I made 6 or 8 prints, I went over what was left of the pattern on the screen with more glue gel, and now I've used the screen repeatedly, on two or three occasions. And still the pattern is strong. Glue Gel is that blue Elmer's school glue that you use as a resist, either on a silk screen or right on fabric kind of like gutta or wax. It's another one of these wonder products that washes up with soap and hot water -- it washes right off the screen when you're finished printing, likewise the resist will wash out of the fabric after it's been dyed.
This is a piece of rayon/linen that I originally printed with construction fencing. It was then overprinted with two different deconstructed screens, and finally finished off today with the dots that you see.
Printing fabric is such a mysterious and wonderful process. Rarely do you get what you anticipate, but the surprises are always so much better than you could have imagined!
