Is it finished?

Have just done my layer on the last RR fabric (Judi’s) I used shiva sticks brushed off the scalloped edge of a plastic doyley with an old toothbrush. The colours are white, yellow ochre & a brown/gold . The aim was to try and pull together the design – I felt the green motifs looked a bit plonked on. I changed my mind a few times on this and I’m happy with it now – BUT – is it finished?

This one definitely isn’t finished. I’m building up the surface by over printing the rectangular shapes. The stencil was made by spaying webbing spray onto a silk screen ( from a new book I have by Claire Benn & Lesley Morgan: Screen Printing, Layering textiles with colour,texture & imagery) This is permanent on the screen but as my screen was old & crappy, that wasn’t a problem – also I think it’s a very versatile texture design which I’ll use again.

I’ve used a torn paper stencil for the shapes. The colours may look slightly off – I think it’s the pale pink fabric. Might overdye but may not need to when I’ve finished printing.

  1. I like the way both pieces are going. For the first piece, I think it depends on how you plan to use. Is it a whole cloth background or will you cut it up? Love the colors and I know it would be really hard for me to cut it up 🙂
