More from the barn

On Wednesday Carol showed us monoprints from two different surfaces.

Ink on purple plastic sheet
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.

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!
