spotted in turquoise...

heres some pictures of part of my day in the studio yesterday. i tried a process of printing the base colour as well as the print for this yardage to see if thats how i'll print more of my yardage. and this is not the way that i'll go with it! which is fine, its all a learning process! i had thought that printing the base colour with an open screen (you just brush dye-water onto the screen, let it dry, and then print it on) would be easier and give a different effect than just pot dyeing the fabric first. but there is some problems with the screens, and its just too lengthy of a process. so the next batch will be pot dyed and then printed on top. ohh and the exposed screen that i was using is way too small of an image, so i need to make some more screens. i have lots of work to do this week!!
