We all had a fabulous time at Lin Wilson’s Breakdown Printing Workshop last weekend (10/11 October), at the Forestville Community Centre.
Lin showed us how to set objects under the screen which would form a texture on the screen when the coloured print paste was pulled through. This was then dried with a hair drier and clear print paste (fibre-reactive dyes thickened with sodium alginate) pulled through. This gradually pulls through the image on the screen with successive pulls pulling more of the colour through until such time as there is nothing or very little texture left on the screen. This produced some beautiful effects, giving a halo around the textured images.
