We will be working with page sizes of 6 x 8 inches and each one will illustrate a different technique or product that can be used for printing. Our list runs to about 20, so we will be working diligently to get them all completed in this one day class. When the pages are complete, they can be assembled into a book in any manner you choose.
These 4 techniques include white paint used as a resist, a 2-screen image that has an outline and fill, foil and glue, and a water-based resist.
Other techniques include printing with multiple colors, using opaque paint, printing transparent paint over opaque, and printing with a combination of Inktense color blocks and matte medium.
In this example, deColourant discharge product is used on 3 different fabrics to show variation.
Another discharge method uses bleach gel, again on different fabrics to show color variations.
Sue chose to print her labels on inkjet fabric and fuse them to the pages, but you can also just write directly on the page itself, and include more detail such as type of paint and/or specific product used.
Here's the inside cover and first page.
And the page using foil and glue.
We have this and more in store for you so if you are near the Washington, DC area, we would love to have you join us on May 18 at Artistic Artifacts in Alexandria to learn how versatile Thermofax screens can be!
