On Wednesday Carol showed us monoprints from two different surfaces.
|thickened dye spread on heavy (violet) plastic|
|Here’s the resulting print.|
Then she spread dye onto the hard plastic-topped table – a large surface for a bigger piece of fabric.
|Spreading the thickened dye|
|Scratches in the surface make their own patterns in the spread dye|
|patterns made in the dye with a notched spreader|
|Adding marks from the pointed tooth edge|
|More thickened dye was spread, then patterns were made in it with a stamp, left, and a sea sponge, right.|
Here’s the cloth being spread onto the dye-painted surface. Only problem – I never took a picture of the finished fabric!
