Following up on Complex Cloth

One of the techniques that Jane demonstrated was using a flour paste, both on fabric and on silk screens. Linda has printed her screen - I am still to do so. But I have a photo of the sample where we squeegeed the flour paste onto fabric, drew into it, let it dry and then painted it with a thin black paint. This is one of my samples - I love it!

I have carved some more erasers and today I printed all of them on a dyed piece of fabric that I loathed. I also did a positive/negative print of an earring that I bought at the $2 shop.

Maybe I'll be brave enough to screen print tomorrow.
