Shakerag Workshop – Day One
Already it’s an intensive day. We’ve made at least two screens, by applying thickened dye in some pattern, to a silk screen, letting it dry and then screening clear or lightly colored dye thickener (sodium algenate) through the screen; repeatedly until all the dye is gone. Each pull is different but still the same!!
This was the first screen made with bubble wrap, a doilie, and a mesh bag.
This was part of it printed on newspaper
First project, multiple printings
Second project – screen made with plastic fencing, large bubble wrap, and a glue gun. This is just the beginning. Tomorrow, I hope to apply other techniques to the two pieces.
