Test Print & Block
Here's the block print I described in my previous post. I used Permaset fabric printing ink on cotton.
I do enjoy block printing, it's simple, low tech, but can be very effective. Thickened dyes can also be used, especially on fine fabrics like silk so the hand of the fabric isn't changed.
I saw some good exhibitions last week, Feltwest members' exhibition, Felt the Water, at Mundaring Art Centre & the Minnawarra Art award at Armadale. Also, there is a new Gallery/cafe opened in Armadale's main street which is quite exciting & unexpected. Hope they do well.
Happy Easter everyone!
