Experimenting with Screen Prints and Salt

Today at Dyeing to Paint we were engrossed in experimenting with salt on painted fabric and trying out Thermofax screens to print.

Keris and Corinne joined us to have a go and produced some lovely effects with painted fabrics. This one was achieved by sprinkling salt on the wet painted fabric.

Hilary was experimenting with paint on wool fabric, and produced a very colourful piece of cloth.

Monica used her Thermofax screen to print the Welsh National Anthem on green fabric ready for a landscape that she intends to create – one day!

And Keris and Corinne also had a go.

And, as well as painting some fabric Ann bundled up some of her painted fabrics ready for Saturday’s stash sale at Glamorgan Quilters!
