I mixed up some print paste today to prepare some screens for screen printing next week. Our group is having our annual art retreat and we’re planning to do some deconstructed screen printing. So I completed the first step so it could dry and be ready.
This screen was placed over a gridded packing material. I used a variety of blue and blue green dye.
Then I used red and yellow dye over a textured shelf liner.
The last screen was created over plastic wrap with blue and red to create a variety of colors.
I had leftover dye on the shelf liner, packing material and plastic wrap. So I printed some papers. These will make good papers for collage or for layering further paint or dye on top. I am looking forward to seeing the screen printing results next weekend.
