The results for this process are always fun to see but not always successful. I do label and keep records of everything in hopes of improving. As I mentioned before, I did both paper (mostly 140 lb.) watercolor paper and fabrics of silk and old linens.
Silk broadcloth on left and an old, worn linen napkin or tablecloth on right. You can see the tone on tone design if you look carefully behind the eco print. The linens seemed to work very well.
And now for the fabric...the silk organza always does well. This particular print had a piece of blue tissue paper placed on top; the color transferred onto the fabric. It was rinsed in the end but not rigorously washed but it will be used in an art piece so I don't plan on washing it.
and silk charmesue which did very well.
I also like to write Haikus so there was a different one for each piece....The were typed in a fancy font and printed on a piece of muslin.
I like to finish the backs so I silkscreen an image that is in keeping with the front, staple it down all around and cover it with an upholstery braid. My Eco printing is done for the year and time to look into new ways to do this...one of which is a press. I have to look into this more....Until next time....
