I am printing scarves today, getting ready for an art fair this weekend. I am using three different silk screens. Two are created with soy wax designs and one has been created using Elmer’s glue. I am amazed at the longevity of the glue screen. I have been using it for some time now. Here it is all messy with dye.
I made a soy wax screen with stripes and it is lasting a long time too. Here are some of the scarves I printed this morning. I think I am going to have to invest in more screens!
I did use another screen that I stamped circles on with soy wax, but I actually got the wax too heavy on it, so there is not a lot of dye put down when you do a pull. I only used it on one of these scarves for a variation in the print. When I get them washed out…I will post the finished look.
