I processed the last of my
thickened dye deconstructed screens...
Here are the results after wash, dry and iron:
The thickened dye was scraped onto the fabric with a
bondo scraper with fuchsia and purple dyes,
then using deep purple dye I drug the scraper
to make the lines,
then I stamped dots and used a metal spring for stamping.
This piece is printed with 2 different screens:
Purple thickened dye was applied to the screen and dried
I used turquoise thickened dye to print the screen
Circular marks transferred from my print board cover
Rubber gloves were pressed into the purple thickened dye
and allowed to dry on the screen...
Looks like glacier covered mountains to me
This is my favorite piece of the day:
It has a grunge quality that I appreciate...
First I applied thickened dye with a scraper...
It needed something more, so I took several exhausted
screens and scraped off the last of the dried thickened dye
onto this piece.
Think of it as cleaning the screens off on this piece of fabric.
Some really cool ghost like markings appeared
after it was washed.
This piece has so much depth...
I plan to use a marker and do some graffiti writing on it.
This piece is also a combination of 2 screens:
The top portion is a screen dried with rubber bands...
Here is a close up of the rubber bands.
The screen exhausted after only 4 prints, so I used
a second screen to finish the fabric:
The second screen was created with a plastic grid.
This last piece is the cover from one of my old print boards:
I also love the grunge look of this piece...
This is a great background for further surface design work.
That's it for deconstructed printing....for now!
