Screen Printing - Positive and Negative

Another way to incorporate multiple colors with thermofax printing is to combine positive and negative images.  This series of photos shows using this process on a t-shirt, the positive image being the flower and the negative being the rectangle surrounding it.  First is a practice piece where I was testing out different colors.
The next 3 are the process of printing on the shirt, first the negative shapes and then adding the positive (after the first prints dry).  Last is a dab of paint in the center of the flower with a paint brush.


Another example of positive and negative images is one of the pictures from the last post.
 
In this piece, the green and yellow flowers are both done with positive & negative screens  - a blue outline/centers and yellow and green petals.
