I am still exploring carving and printing. I am trying to make some patterns again but this time not on the computer. I am going to try my hand at block printing on fabric. In the early 80's I did some fabric painting but never with a carved block. First I have to remember everything I forgot about tiling in order to make a repeat pattern.
As you can see, this one doesn't really work as a repeat pattern but I like it anyway.
Also rather than using block printing ink which is so thick, I am using screen printing ink. I like it much better as it is thinner and doesn't rub off.
These are some fun experiments!
