I started using black cotton.
A dried fern leaf was used to give a mask of the leaf's shape.
The leaf was removed and a ghost print was pulled.
The painted fern leaf was then applied to pieces that had already been printed and dried, giving an added layer.
This is a cedar tree leaf mask.
Then a ghost print of the same leaf.
I don't have too many stencils, so made do with objects found around the house - this is from a bath mat.
Stencil of circles - mask and ghost print - positive and negative.
I'm not too fond of these next two. Maybe because the fabric is white??? I think I'm going to overdye each one.
I ran out of pre-cut fabric, so started using watercolour paper. The process is fast and I couldn't find enough flat spaces to lay the pieces to dry, so had to stop, but am looking forward to printing again when space permits.
