Foot Square #25

Hand dyed, screen printed, block printed, and the red is also printed with an onion sliced lengthwise.  I love onion prints!  The onion is sliced and left out to dry out overnight so the rings separate and give more definition to the print.

The Chinese writing says: "Montana".

Nice! I have to ask: did the onion slice bother your eyes while you were printing with it? I love the image, but would be concerned about crying all over the printed area! And how long does it last before you have to discard it (the onion, I mean!)

I slice the onion the night before and leave it out to dry a bit and that gives the rings more definition. No - no tears, but it does smell like an onion!

I would put up with a few onion tears to create this beauty. Gorgeous!!!
