On Weds our Fiber Junkies group met at Val's house for a day of Deconstructive Screenprinting. We've done this before and it's always great fun. The technique involves laying thin objects underneath a blank silk screen, then using a squeegee to lay thickened dye on top. The dye on the screen takes on the shapes of all the objects. After the screen is dry, a thickened paste mixture is used to loosen the dye which in turn prints on fabric underneath. I forgot my camera but have my own to share. There were some wonderful ones created by Val, Kate and Mary and some really interesting objects for placing underneath the screens.
I decided to go through my stash and grab scraps of all kinds of fabric good for using with procion mx dyes so here goes. The first one below is Test fabric mercerized 419 cotton, the best fabric for using with mx dyes.
