the orange fabric is a little bit special btw..I was in bangkok a few years ago (on the way back from Australia) and the local supermarket sold monks robes, they are a set of various pieces of orange fabric that are presumably draped in lots of different ways. Not being a buddhist monk, I didn't ever wear them! but they make a great base on which to print. I couldn't decide between the black or red, so I did both!


Having lived in Bangkok- this makes the printed fabric you made for me even more special!

I recieved the most amazing block printed fabric from edelC!! I am blown away by her jaw dropping carving skills. I mean, just take a look at these:








Amazing, right!? I think I am just going to put some of these in a hoop and hang them on my wall- they are perfect just the way they are.

Thank you so much edelC!!

my second attempt at burning turned out a little better. I am going to print some tonight! I still need to burn one more screen, but I should be done by Monday.

I am really excited about what you are sending edelC!! Your fabrics look so fun!

I've finally found some time to take a photo of the awesome hoop that Acadian Driftwood made for me. She combined Game of Thrones, Zentangle, ALL THE STITCHES, and negative space to create this one of a kind piece of artwork.



Look at all those amazing stitches! This makes my hand cramp up just looking at it (but in the best possible way)



I will treasure this forever!!

Sooo.... that did not go well  Sad  I thought I had the set up correct and the correct exposure time, but on my 10x14 screen only half the screen had images on it and of those that did show up- they didn't turn out correctly.  The areas right under the bulb didn't turn out- which makes me think I overexposed my screen. I used a 150 watt bulb in a reflector 12 inches from my the screen. I exposed it for 45 minutes.

So I did my second screen, and there are faint yellow lines where the images were, but when I rinsed them and tried to print- absolutely nothing came through- on the entire screen. It was a 16x20 screen that  I exposed for 1 hour 32 minutes ( the bulb was 17 inches from the screen)Was that too long? Not long enough? I have no idea what happened with that one

So, I am appealing to you screen printing masters- what did I do wrong?

I think the reason the images that did process were wonky was because the original images were not opaque enough. So I am going to print out multiple transparencies with the same image and over lap them when I burn my screens again.

Sorry for all the questions, but I am a complete newbie at this method of screen printing and I don't want to waste any more photo emulsion  Grin

I am going to burn my screens tonight! Crossing my fingers that there are no catastrophes.

I am loving all of these hoops. I love all of the different interpretations of "place"

I had to scrap the 1st hoop I was working on for Acadian Driftwood. It was such a hot mess. However, the idea I have now is pretty awesome- if I can pull it off in a few days! Better get back to stitching.
