Printing the next Hidden Message fabrics

So having sampled on similar coloured fabrics I spent the weekend using thermofax and screen printing to create a group of gorgeous fabrics ready for the next set of Hidden Message pieces. I started with a hand dyed 21 piece colour family. I used a single screen on some. Others I used a couple of screens. Some were discharged. Some were printed with screen printing inks. Some were over printed. I still have 7 pieces of fabric to print but I'm pretty happy with the results so far. Printed hand dyed colour family

Printing - marking out fabric with pins and thread so that I can see where to print

Printing - using kitchen towel to mask areas to stop 'ghosting'

Printing with discharge paste - activating with an iron

Printed fabrics drying in the studio
