Title: Mono-prints on fabric swap?
Post by: loves2experiment on August 21, 2019 03:34:59 AM


Back in April, I had the opportunity to experiment with fabric printing (using a gelatin plate).  It was so much fun! 
I'm a newbie at this, but I can totally see why it is addictive :D

Is there any interest in swapping for swatches of mono printed fabric?

What size of fabric swatches would you guys like to work with?  Let's talk more about this :)

We did 4 pieces of 6x6 papers per partner in the masterboard swap.  But, Spoonflower's swatch size is 8x8".

Either of those would be fine with me. Iíll prob cut up a piece of muslin or linen for base so can make any size work.

I really like the idea of 8" x 8" swatches :D

How does 4 pieces per partner sound?  With the choice of 1 or 2 partner(s)?

Maybe 2 weeks of crafting time before sendouts (since it shouldn't take too long to print the pieces and make sure they're dry enough to mail).

And are we good to start this in September?  Or would October be better for everyone?

Still here...and I have no idea where the bulk of September went  ::)

I propose the following dates:
Signups September 25 to October 5.
Send by October 25...plenty of time for printing.

BigBangMomma, I can't wait to print more fabric!

Ok, yay! Sounds good! I just got sweet hummingbird and puffin stamps hand-carved from AlishaMisha that I really want to use on fabric!

Oooh, hand carved stamps are the best!
