Deconstructed Screen Printing.....the last of the screens


I had deconstructed screen prints batching
 the last few days so I rinsed them out today:


 At this point, they have been rinsed out in the sink...




 They are soaking wet hanging on the flower bed fence...




 they will look much different after a 
HOT machine washing...




 The finer details of the printing show up
better when they come out of the dryer.



This is what the screen looked like
BEFORE the printing:

The texture on this screen was created with a plastic
mesh screen and plastic wrap scrunched up and pressed on top.



Below are the printed images on cloth:

 All of the fabric images have been washed and dryed
at this point...



I used clear thickened print paste only.
No dye added.





This is the next screen before printing:

The texture on this screen was created with corrugated
cardboard and bubble wrap



Here are the printed images on fabric:







This is the next screen before printing:

The texture on this screen was created with a coffee cup cardboard
sleeve and plastic tubing


These are the prints on fabric:








This is the screen BEFORE printing:

The texture on this screen was created with round non-slip rubber
rings for the bath tub, metal hooks, paper clips, soda can tabs


These are the printed images on fabric:







I don't have the BEFORE screen for these
images on fabric:








This is the screen BEFORE printing:

The texture on this screen was made with a plastic grate 
used in a food smoker.


These are the printed images on fabric:











I don't have the BEFORE screen image:

These are the images printed on fabric:








This is the screen BEFORE printing:

The texture on this screen was created with a metal
screen tray used in a BBQ.


These are the images printed on fabric:













I printed 9 Deconstructed screens on about
4 yards of cotton fabric...


I get excited over the unknown...




You never know what a deconstructed screen
is going to produce until you take the 
printed fabric out of the dryer!

Thanks for all of the pictures. They give such a good idea of what deconstructed screen printing can do.
