Sample Printing

9 May

Finally it is that time of year where I have transfered some of my drawings to screen and started sampling what kind of fabrics I would like to print on. I have mostly been printing on silks and velvet: unfortunately these two fabrics are notoriously hard to photograph, I  not sure that the images I have included really do them much justi I have included the original sepia ink drawing for my large geometric repeat pattern, just to show the process of the original artwork and then how I translate that into repeat.

Here is the original drawing.

This is my repeat design form the drawing. This print is on silk dupion.

Some of my samples folded on my desk…

Blue on blue.

Velvet sample. This picture really doesn’t do it any justice.

My messy desk in the studio…

    I really like the olive green dupion. I think the contrast shows the pattern best. :)
