Karlyn's Day at the Montana Art Quilt Retreat

These two pictures of the design wall show Karlyn's work with Setacolor painting techniques, screen printing, foiling, stamping, and sun printing (without the sun).

In the next two images, Karlyn is cutting her own rubber stamp using plumbers gasket material.

The rubber sheet can be drawn on, cut with scissors, and carves easily with a Speedball cutter.

The finished rubber stamp is mounted onto a wood block using water resistant double sided carpet tape.

Below, you can see Karlyn in the process of making a gelatin print.

Karlyn painted her gelatin plate with Setacolor paints, and placed native grasses over the paint to give a detailed print of the grass. Karlyn used silk organza for this print.

These beautiful gelatin prints were made by Karlyn on silk organza. The picture does not do them justice, but you get the idea . . . . fabulous!

The next Montana Art Quilt Retreat takes place October 5 - 7 in Billings, Montana. The pdf registration form is here.

Space is limited.
