I have been making pots and ceramic jewellery components this week but will reveal those when they are finished.
So I thought I would show you my screen printing practice pieces, I’m doing an online course with Dionne Swift.
I have learnt 5 different accessible approaches to screen printing and when I have time I will explore these techniques further, I want to combine printing and stitching, and also screen print on ceramics.
I like the way each technique has it’s own particular qualities.
I can’t say too much about the techniques but I can say these first 2 samples have lots of layering
This next printing technique didn’t quite do what I hoped but some of the other course participants have done some amazing stuff so I will have to give it another go.
This technique was quite random and interesting but sometimes you need to know when to stop……too many layers!
I have enjoyed learning these different methods used to screen print, I intend to explore them further when I have time, but next time I must be more careful with the dye powders, I inadvertantly dyed my clothes, a sheet, and my foot 🙂
Now I have to get my pots finished before I can experiment with stitch and print, I could use some new cushion covers.
