Printed matter













This week I´ll busy myself with printing and dyeing...













Ages ago, long before the textiles took over, I bought
an old indian stamp, because I liked it just as an object.
Then I gave it to someone who wanted to try some wall
decoration with it, and forgot about it...













But now it´s back where it belongs.
This print (thickened walnut dye) looks better here
than in real, and it washed off too much, and I don´t
like brown anyways...
The first photo shows a card I made yesterday, with a
sponge rubber print.
More soon...

I bought a couple of those ... same reason. Did some paint printing but I'm interested in seeing what you do with fabric. I tried rubbing with oil crayons...worked well.

liking this immensely....looking forward to where you take this...I've been using old stencils lately and walnut ink is one of my favorites though i'm a one trick pony when it comes to dying fabric...

..be careful!...

Stamping can be great fun !
I made stamps out of "Radiergummi"
That is soft and easy to cut, only the size isn't very big ....
(made my new year cards with it)

Hey, everyone... - yes, that indian stamp is pretty, and I wouldn´t mind having more, but I´m not too sure about it for fabric use, too flowery perhaps, so it might end up as a paper-weight - at the moment I´m rather fond of that sponge rubber stuff...

the walnut print looks interesting. the technique also looks like a field for exploration
