On Screens & Threads

After I printed some fabric early in the week, with thickened dyes, I prepared these screens for deconstructed screen printing sometime in the near future. Here they are...

I love the results of deconstructed screen printing, although it has to be the messiest of all the processes I've been doing lately. If I weren't already doing this in my kitchen, I'd say, "Don't try this at home!" It actually helps, though, that I can print on the wet work table in my kitchen, then turn around 180 degrees and be right at the kitchen sink for wash off and clean up.

This morning I tied on 100 cotton warp ends to the threaded linen ends-- just 500 to go!

I've got to sign off and get into my day. Have a good one!

Connie, these fabrics are lovely. I guess I need to get back to doing that too. You're right, they are messy, but I definitely love working with the thickened dye. May I put a link on my blog to yours?
