I've been composting and screenprinting away today. Here I have some fabric that was already dyed red, with a madder lac dyebath. I've wrapped the bundle in copper wire and put it out doors.
I've been working with this lace tablecloth for the better part of the day, screenprinting it as a resist. I've printed up lots of fabric, some yardage pieces, all using natural dyes, and a natural thickener as my print paste.
It just goes to show that if you get in the studio, and start producing, and keep at it long enough the creative juices will come back. It helps that I brought my little portable stereo to the basement so I could listen to my music. I listen to alot of instrumental, it helps get me into the creative mood/flow.
