Judith came over again and I am LOVING these frequent visits. She was here yesterday and will return next Saturday. Yipee. I haven't had this much fun all winter.
After she left last week, I used some of the thickened dye to set up some silk screens for deconstructing. I broke them down with print paste on pre-treated fabric yesterday while Judith batiked her pieces at the other end of the table.
I am continuing on the landscape series so please keep that in mind as I show you what I am doing to create workable pieces/parts of a landscape.
These are the screen being set up.
This one is one the line waiting to dry. I think I have mentioned why I dry all of the pieces I dye with thickened print paste before washing them out.
Although this was hanging on the line I oriented the photo so the horizontal nature of the pieces are easier to see. Obviously I miss the boat on the top most print - sheesh!
This is one of two charcoal drawing I photographed, thresholded and sent to Lyric Kinard for making me a thermofax. I will use these in the landscapes as well.
