This was fun..not as silly as the flamingos, a little more serious!...and a lot more time consuming to cut...ouch my back!...

The hearts are approx 5 inches high..



Edit:..I couldn't leave it alone..so I overprinted this one in red..I freehanded it in terms of registration because I wanted it to be looser...





I printed the first few onto paper


and then onto fabric...the fabric was actually really difficult to photograph. It already had a white swirly pattern on there and the camera kept reading that...but I really like how this one turned out.

 



and just a few more!...this one on fabric I tie dyed about a million years ago.


and red on more tie dyed fabric..I actually like this one..


so which works best do you think? of course I printed some more red on the paper prints...and I printed a tee-shirt for myself...and quite a few more bits and pieces...but you've had enough of pix by now..lol

The hearts on the red swirly fabric are my favorite. Fabulous job carving the block, too. I am  duly impressed Smiley

these are great, the double printed red/black are my favourite, could be cool in unexpected colours too like green!

or for a really creepy look one heart and then a spatter of red paint Smiley

speaking of which, what paint are you using for these? are you rolling the paint onto the linocut (like you would to print on paper) or dabbing it in paint?

keep going!!!

thanks...these are all speedball screen printing inks for fabric. I put a little onto a piece of glass and work it with a roller until it is sticky..and then roll onto the linocut, I re-ink before each print.

I will get a tute together for the next one

thanks for the info, I did one linocut and inked it that way but it didn't print very solid, trying to figure out where I went wrong.

It might have been because the ink wasn't sticky enough, block printing ink tends to be of a higher viscosity than screen printing inks, my tub of black had a cracked lid for ages, I had some plastic over it, but some of the water evaporated so it is blobby rather than pour-y...and it works the best. I reckon if you inked a plate and worked it with the roller for a while and left it for a couple of minutes it should work better..


also it really depends on the texture of the fabric, coarse fabric will give a coarser print every time...I was wondering (and thinking about trying) a pad of newspapers underneath to give a little bit of cushioning.

plus I have found that a softer slightly foamy roller works better than a hard roller..I use the hard roller to roll the back of the linocut when it is in place on the fabric.
