Screen Printing for Pillows


A few weeks ago, I painted some fabric to coordinate with the sage green I painted in our family room walls. Now, I am screen printing that fabric with images of trees and shrubs. I decided to create a custom color by mixing brown, metallic gold, and black Speedball fabric inks.


I pulled some of my favorite screens of branches. The image above is a Thermofax screen adapted from a photo of a patch of chokecherry shrubs right outside our family room window.
The image below is adapted from a photo I took on a hike to Glacier Lake in the Beartooth Mountains. A forest fire burned through the area 20 years ago or so, leaving these ghostly trunks.
