it has taken quite a while for me to do this chapter, time to devote to it, waiting for devoré paste then fabric, then i decided to buy a proper screen for screen printing as i knew i would use it again and ........ So here goes and by the way Art Van Go don't stock 'Fibre Etch' anymore as they say it was too harsh! so firstly in #1 i used the devoré paste freehand in the top one and with a 'Thermofax' screen on the lower one. both on cotton organdie to create actual holes.
#5 and voila a devoréd image. this one i use torn strips of paper and my cloud images from before (looks a bit Matissey)
#6 i used a paper cut mask of the image below, using both the positive and negative pieces of paper. i think i got slightly carried away with this method and i am certainly smitten with the effect.
my husband said to me 'what on earth do you want to take a picture of that for?'
#8 i used letter cut outs and paper offcuts for this one. it is also the same as image #4 where i had stitched a zig-zag in the top right creating a wonderful texture, might have to try some more of this
#10 just adding a bit of colour. i am keen to continue with these perhaps dyeing them and over printing but at the moment i feel i have done enough?!
