Printed Fabrics

Printed Fabric
I used a couple of my estoile blocks to print pieces of my hand-dyed fabrics. I didn't like the way the acrylic paint stuck to the fabric and found it virtually impossible to get a second shadowy impression without coating the lino again. I've made a note to experiment further by mixing fabric mediums with the paint or to use Brusho with printing medium to see if it improves the outcome.

  1. So it's a lino block. Mmm, must try one out....where would I get lino? Do I need cutting tools as well??
