Thermofax Screen Printing on Marbled Fabric
Several years ago, I did a session of fabric marbling in my studio. I had mixed results. I ended up with a lot of white lines where the fabric folded as I was laying it onto the vat. Sorting through my collection, I was looking for a way to use the fabric in some Mail Art postcards.
I had this Thermofax screen of a Monarch butterfly that I wanted to use, so I got busy..
As you can see, I tape the edges of my Thermofax screens with duct tape. This keeps them from rolling up, but they also remain flexible.
I am happy with this first one! Now to do more!
