It's been that kind of week. I actually had three deadlines; two huge projects and an art exhibit which opened tonight. Don't know how I did it - but I managed to get it all in on time, delivering the art this morning and then going to the museum to print. I've been keeping my copy machine and my thermofax busy making screens so I could do some things that were different from previous work.
Today was a combination of printing new fabric and going back into what I call the piece from hell. Last week, I took a gorgeous piece of chartreuse and printed it with black. The black was so strong I couldn't stand it. See what I mean? Overwhelming.So today, in desperation, I printed with this week's new favorite screen and tried to obliterate those horrid black lines. As you can see, to no avail. You can still see the black lines. Now what?"Aha," I thought, "I'll discharge and maybe the lines will disappear." Ok, I admit it - I was hoping they would disappear. So i put discharge paste through the same screen and tonight i steamed the fabric.Well, it is getting more intreresting - but the black lines are not going away. i guess i'm stuck with them - but i am not giving up yet and i'll get back to this to put down another layer.
in the meantime, I printed two more pieces. One might be done; the other still needs more.
