The mediums used to prepare the fabric surfaces for printing were Golden Regular Gel Matte, Golden Gesso, and Ink Aid. The printer used was Epson Stylus C88, an economical printer that uses archival inks.
Photoshop software processed selected images to print. Jeana demonstrated a fool proof method for breaking down larger images into printable blocks.
The results were fun and the process leaves me with more ideas for experimentation. The process gives a painterly effect to the fabric which I love, speaking to my current exploration of paint and hand stitch on textiles.
I love the results !!! Take and look below for details and the final pieced piece.
