Once a month I get together with a friend, Nola, and we try out different creative techniques. Last month we looked at printing on fabric with compressed sponge
I used Derivan screen-printing inks and applied them to the stamp with a sponge brush.
Both of us are working on ideas for pieces to exhibit later in the year and I decided to continue with the sponge printing this month and make a range of samples on paper. I’ve got a pile of strips and offcuts from my OCA printing course and it seemed a good time to use some up. There are quite a few thicknesses and colours and all printed well.
The sponge was used dry for some samples and damp for others.
