I made the below sample by doing the following:
- I drew around my hands to make a dove shadow puppet image and cut this out of craft foam to use as a stencil
- I drew the stencil onto freezer paper, which I then cut out using a scalpel and ironed onto the fabric
- I sponged on the screen printing ink, but could do with a slightly thicker layer as this looks a bit patchy
- The cross is a piece of craft foam stuck to the end of the cork and the little square was a piece of craft foam left over when I was cutting out the cross. I used fabric pigment stamp pads for these shapes as they are so small.
As this is such a small scale printing run it seems much more suitable to play with more basic techniques rather than using the space and apparatus that screen printing requires (plus I do not have any screen printing equipment). So far it's been fun!
