Play time. You will need:
A well worn screen - just in case
Indian printing blocks
Yep, got all those to hand
So, now to try screen printing using neocolour crayons.
I took rubbings direct onto the screen using printing
blocks and crayons. Then loaded screen with Golden
Medium to print onto cotton. A pretty good print.
Result, after stitching.
Conclusion - Worked well, although colours
were not as expected - darker. The
cloth has a slightly plastic feel. Not sure I
like this. I tried hand stitching in places.
A bit difficult to say the least. Machine
stitching, yes, but no room for mistakes.
Needles leave holes that can't be removed.
Some machine embroidery threads seemed
to shred and break.
Well, checked that technique out. Will I
do more? The jury is still out. Sample to
be filed for future reference.
