Screen Printing with A.R.T.

More fabric from the A.R.T workshop based on Rayna Gillman’s book, Create Your Own Hand-Printed Cloth.

The above print is from a screen using masking tape and pieces of torn newspaper. The following prints used the same screen, but I pulled off the newspaper and threw in some paper “dots” from my 3-hole punch:

On the last print above, I used a couple of the wet newspaper pieces to “stamp” paint onto the fabric.

The following print was screened onto commercial fabric:

Then, I bleached the fabric to bring up the contrast between the background and the print:

Nope, don’t like that, so I added some DyNa-Flow paint:

That’s better, although I wish the DyNa-Flow hadn’t run so much, but that was the chance I took by wetting the fabric.

More fabric to try to figure out how to use!

There are so many ways to print on fabric. It must be fun trying things out. I love the vibrant colours you have used.

Your experiments are going well! I am mad for all kinds of surface design. :D

Thanks for the look at your screen printing. I love the colors and the organic patterns. I've been wanting to take a class for a few years and will take a look at the book you recommended.

You got great results with this. I think that last piece with the dye-na-flow added to it is really wonderful.
