Textile Pattern Print Jan 2016

I used this same pattern for the screen-printed deck chair I contributed MMU’s school of art RHS flower show stand in the summer.

I wanted to screen-print the pattern on to a length of fabric so I could use the material for some other projects I have in mind. Usually I am a paper printer foremost, so it was new experience setting up the material (a heavy cotton/satin) on to the table and registering a repeat pattern for 10-metre length print.

This time I chose a more subtle colour scheme (blue theme), using the pigment binder to thin down the colour to a very pale version of the original dark blue.

Below: pictures of setting up, progress and printing in action.
