Working on some new designs

This afternoon I have been working on some new screen print designs with the idea to use them on bed linen. I’ve done some test prints to go with our bed linen, pillowcases are always the thing that wears out first. I am recycling vintage cotton bed sheets as my print surface.

I had drawn this feather a while ago, some may have seen it featured in one of my big draw posts. I wanted to test it out as a print.

I like to use up as much of the ink on the screens as possible and in doing so get unexpected results.

Adding the second colour

After heat fixing the print I’ve hand washed the fabric to test the fix.

I really like the way the prints have come out and plan to continue experimenting.
