So this piece of cloth is now finished (I think). The paint is dry and I like this one also. I think I prefer the look of the first one, though - there is a bit of overlap in spots where the screen prints are not lined up just right. Maybe this creates visual interest..... not sure, but it doesn't really matter much at this point. This is going into the slush pile for the future.
What I really need to focus on is incorporating the zinc into my design.....! That is next on my schedule!
