  • unframed nylon screens

    I saw Ginny Eckley demonstrate screen printing on show 1104. I am trying to locate the type/name of the nylon screen she used. It looks like a great alternative to the traditional framed screen that I am currrently using. Does anyone know what this product is?

  • surface design

    I was reading Patty Young's tips and came up with a good idea (it may not be original, I'm not sure). She said to design, write notes etc. right on your work surface. Right away I thought of the table-top rolls of drawing paper sold for children's artwork. They are mounted on wooden rollers...

  • Re: Fabric paint comparison

    [quote user="mtnjohn"] In my reading about fabric painting there appears to be 2 brands most often mentioned - Jacquard and Setacolor. From what I gather both are thinned with water; and, applicators (brushes, etc) can be cleaned with water. Setacolor is mentioned in relation to sun painting...

    That looks great, Deborah. What kind of paint did you use? I have taken buttons with a raised,neat design and glued them to the end of a wine cork and used as stamps for fabric. Hey, it's a good reason to open a bottle of wine!!

  • Re: mixing hand-painted fabrics with commercial prints

    I like glue resist too. It is fun to work with. Looking at your photos it seems your fabrics are blending well. I agree, you can enhance your focal point, the sun, with embroidery, paint or beading if you wanted to do that. I used glue resist on some silk fabric and painted with the setacolor paints...

    Ok....Here is my entry!! I tried several things, but I really wanted to do shoe prints! So I took my youngest daughters first pair of tennis shoes (Istill haven't gotten around to bronzing them! and she's almost 6). I applied black paint to the bottoms and "walked" across the fabric...

  • Re: What is your favorite surface technique?

    I like couching yarns and fibers and sewing wire onto my pieces. Sometimes I make spirals from the wires and sew them on and sometimes I just use organic shapes from the wires. Once I was making fabric beads and using wire on them as an accent. I bent the wire too much so I snipped it off to start over...
