Favourite technique – breakdown printing of course!

23 February 2016 3

After a couple of months of composition, contruction and stitch I am back at my print bench doing what I love best – breakdown printing! I’m not trying to make a glorious piece of wholecloth. I’m printing fabrics which are going to be cut into smallish pieces before being reassembled. So there is no agonising over where to place my screen. No worrying that I’ve ruined the piece by laying down one too many prints. Just joyous, carefree application of colour, shape and texture to cloth. Accompanied by loud music and to be followed up by a glass of wine. Call me sad but life does not get much better then this!

  1. I agree! Life at the print bench is the best. Looking foreward to see what comes out of it!


  2. Great to hear you so happy. I look forward to seeing the next stage


  3. Guess I’m in good company. Now the bit that isn’t so much fun – washing screens!


  4. No one calling you sad over here, Leah! I am too busy having fun smoothing acrylics over my textiles myself 🙂
