A Good Day for Dye Batching.

Saturday, July 7th, 2012

We are having temps in the high 80s so I decided it would be a good day to do some deconstructed screen printing. These are the first pulls that I got. I had used blue and yellow and green when I created the screen. I wanted to get someĀ  prints that would look like water. These are a bit green for what I wanted.

I mixed up some cobalt blue to add to the prints.

That is more like it. I think I will use these in a deep blue sea piece. I want to have some kelp in it, so I dyed some chartreuse.

Kerr had these wonderful little mini t-pins for stretching and holding the fabric for printing.

I bought a half pound!! Certainly a life time supply for me. Here is a link, if you are interested.

Here is today’s 3 x 3.
