Why is nothing easy?? The next step with my printmaking was to replicate the design in fabric that it could be quilted. So on the left is the design I choose from yesterday’s printmaking:
Next to it, it is the fabric version – well sort of. The cutter won’t cut the fabric stencils the right way up so I turned the bonded fabric over on the cutter and it mostly worked. A bit of scissor work required. The pale grey is the failed cut which required lots of scissor work. The dark is the turned over fabric – which means it was reversed!! So I know I am dyslexic but even I should have worked that out!. So then I randomised with the fabric shapes to see if the concept worked. The resident art critic says it doesn’t have enough texture! So the jury is out.
Hopefully when I do my next post, i will have managed to replicate a print in fabric.
One thought on “Printmaking to textile”
I love the graphic quality of the prints and understand what you mean about the fabric. I had (obviously incorrectly) imagined that you were going to print directly onto the fabric – either as a wholecloth or printed shapes with added seam allowance and then pieced. Still love the concept though. xxx
