i was so excited that i couldn't wait for my silkscreen
to arrive , so i tried out semi transparent paint
and just brush it on.

what i like in the blue one are the pencil lines
and i had to think of this drawing i have.

coincidentally kelly showed a picture from a tablecloth
yesterday by dora jung


the bottom one is my favorite , i get easily distracted
when i use color so that's for a later stage
and with transparent paint it doesn't seem
to lay on top of the fabric so much
my discoveries so far....

ohhh, lovely! the print has such depth!

are you using transparent silk screen paint? I've never heard of it!?

Loraine said...

Hi lena , thank you!

it's a transparent base that you mix with the color.It comes in the same pots
the brand is unico

the types of paint puzzled me because the blue one is also called transparent.
the ones that are not transparent are used for black backgrounds

You should try it !

I'm so glad you're posting your stuff again! These remind me of your chocolate dipped tea cloths!

And that drawing is very simple; nice of course.

Loraine said...

Thanks pom ! :)

i decided to take the plunge and post more often about the things i'm doing

those chocolate ones still have to be sewn....

pom said...

Well i think you should as well!

I mean, your things fit so nicely into all the other great things you post, so it works out great :]

Lena said...
