Well, look at it now!
I love things that thrive on neglect, don't you?
Here are some first results from my deconstructed screen printing escapades here at home.
For those of you who were in Kansas City for the SD Conference, if you thought it was humid there, think again! I have had to personalize our print paste recipe, omitting all urea and increasing the alginate. It's still not perfect, but I'm getting there! So, I suspect I will have much more vivid screen prints once the recipe is suitable for this very humid climate!
Below is a portion of a tank top that I have been tinkering with for about a year now!
I had been playing around with reds and pinks (definitely not me!) and then discharging with added turquoise dye. It just didn't send me, so I hung it on the rack in the studio, where it frustrated me every time I glanced over at it! LOL So the other day I decided to fix it once and for all............I dumped it into the soda soak and then into a combo of greens that I had mixed up for an order a few months back. It now goes beautifully both with my hair AND my turquoise linen slacks! WooHoo!!! I'd like to say that I planned it that way, but aren't those happy accidents fun!
Enjoy your weekend!!!
