I painted another screen and it took pretty much all day. I got a screen which - like all available screens - had soaked layers of dyes from previous uses so I could hardly guess where I started painting. After layers and layers of painting and drying with a hairdryer the picture came forward and although I felt I haven't finished, it was time to finish - pull it through the screen over fabric with this binding/fixing agent, then dry it and steam it for about 30 minutes. The photo above shows approximately what I thought the finished result would look like, with the exception of those light bubbles which resulted from me not stretching the fabric well enough.
And below are a few pictures of the work in progress, including a photo of Mel Bradley, our teacher preparing the fabrics for steaming.
The good news - excellent news - is that I am doing another 5-day course next week - introduction to photography. At last I am hoping to learn a few tips on how to use my camera properly.
