I decided to explore further with
jello printing on dark fabrics...
The Thread Shed is all set up for a day of play...
The jello plate is covered with
white metallic craft paint
and paper horse images...
This is the image printed on black fabric.
I left the paper horses in place on the jello plate,
painted over them with yellow paint:
Then removed the paper horses...
This is the second horse print on black fabric.
I printed out a bird silhouette on printer paper,
covered the jello with yellow paint,
placed the bird cut out on top of the paint:
This created a dramatic print on black fabric.
I left the bird cut out on the jello plate:
Then covered over it with green paint.
Then removed the bird paper...
This second print has the previous yellow paint on the
bird and the tree.
The cut out paper image did not survive
when I removed it from the jello plate.
I enjoy cutting paper.....let's do it again...
I am enjoying the more complex looking prints...
The first print on the left
is crisper and more dramatic.
The second print on the right
is more complex in appearance.
I am only able to produce 2 prints...
then the paper silhouette falls apart.
Next time I will print the silhouette images
on plastic sheets that will last through many,
many printing sessions.
I had a good day experimenting with black fabric,
but it is time to clean up...
