New Art Cloth

I've been working on some dyed fabric and adding layers of colour by silkscreening and painting thin lines. I used the Stewart Gill Alchemy paints for the silk screening. They are thick and very pigment rich. I love working with them.

The screen was partially blocked with soy wax that I had brushed on...it's not permanent as I can wash it out with hot water later. I love the soy wax and use it often for batik, it melts at a lower heat, there's no smell and I can remove it very easily.

Once I was finished with the painting I let it dry and then heat set it with a hot iron. I'm very pleased with the results.
