5/22/17


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!

Loving these printing experiments! Makes me want to get out my block print tools.
