Thermofax Screen Printed Butterflies for Fusing
I used a Thermofax screen converted from my own photographs of butterflies (I printed both Monarch and Swallowtail butterflies), on some marbled cotton broadcloth. I attached Mistyfuse to the back, then carefully cut the butterflies out. I plan to use some of these for Mail Art, but the others will be put away for future projects.
Here is the photograph I took last year of a Swallowtail butterfly in my garden. This is the picture I used to create the Thermofax screen. I thought you'd enjoy seeing the photo I started with.
