Preparing Screens

I prepared a bunch of screens for deconstructed screen printing. We had the printing session this afternoon and I’ll show you results later.

Set up for Deconstructed Screens

I did buy a new screen recently and it’s ready to get for dye.

First Screen

I used a syringe to apply dye to this one. I let if dry and then added some background colors as well. Forgot to get a photo though.

Second Screen

Here’s another one where I used a syringe and a large dry brush to apply dye. Again, I let it dry and added more background color. No photo of this one either.

Third Screen

Here’s one where I used the dry brush only.

Soy Wax Screen

This one I used soy wax on a variety of circular objects.

Soy Wax Screen with Dye Added

I then added dye and let that dry.

Louise's Screen

This is a screen that Louise made. Cool, isn’t it? We had a fun session screen printing today. I have to wash out the fabric before I take photos. Have a good weekend and thanks for stopping by.

  1. Oh I need to try this! I bought a small screen ages ago but still haven’t got around to doing anything with it. Your screens look really interesting and I can’t wait to see your results Ruth.

  2. Looks like you and the girls are in for a fun session Ruth! Will you be printing on felt or something else?

    I still have a generous pile of printed prefelt from the class I took with you, really need to get through that pile first before I make any more! 🙂 What will you use these prints for?

    • Thanks Teri! We are using Procion Mx dyes for silk and cotton. I printed on cotton and paper. I have huge piles of printed felt that I need to use up. I am going to use some of them for samples for my next class about free motion stitching on felt.

      Not sure what I will do with the printed cotton or paper yet. It will go in my very large and growing stash of colored fabric and paper.
