Flour paste screen

I made this screen in Jane’s workshop at Fibres West last week but didn’t get time to print it until today. You coat the screen with flour paste then scratch your design out with a wooden skewer. It’s a great low tech way to get a fine line stencil on the screen. It lasts for one print run but I managed to do quite a lot of prints on various dyed fabrics.

The top pic shows the whole design printed on rayon. The crackle design in the background was also done with flour paste but on the fabric. The method for that has been covered in an article in Feb/March QA magazine.

  1. I love the graphic quality of your screen. I have not been brave enough to print mine yet, but have made a couple more stencils and a heap of eraser stamps
