Lunch was great fun even though it was POURING outside.
The nice part was Judith coming over this past Friday and announcing that we would do anything I wanted. I wanted (and needed) to do some printing for the December blog posts on the FIRE blog. We both had a ball with thickened dyes. You will have to wait until December to see my work on "A dozen uses for Silk Screens" but I also had a few great clean up clothes.
The one below is from scraping out my cups of thickened print paste instead of just throwing it out
This was a very soft piece of innocent cotton I was planning on using as a handkerchief that I snatched up and used to wiped my hands and squeegee. It will make a nice handkerchief.
This was actually a large piece of cotton that was left over. It was soda soaked and not great quality. I had some red and yellow thickened dye from the December blog work and I don't like red and yellow. I could bare to throw it away so I put blue in each and used a credit care to apply the green and purple (which I do like) to the cotton. I have plans for this!
