As you can probably gather from my Gelli printed and stamped projects I’m a bit fascinated by different printing techniques. Lumi have developed a product that uses the power of sunlight to create a printed image – so many possibilities!
Anyway, come check out my project on the blog – I have a bunch of pictures to show you the steps. I’d love to see what you create so please leave a comment below or post a pic to my Facebook page.
I thought I would show you my practice piece as well – I used some magenta ink and painted a taped off rectangle of heavy calico and used a paint encrusted stencil for the shadow. The paint gave the stencil a useful opaqueness!
Note to self – lock the dog off the deck before printing. My whippet was very curious and shifted the stencil a little with his nose!
If you look you can see how the stencil is lifted a little from the fabric surface, it gave the final print a slightly diffuse look on that side.
My finished fabric piece. The bottom of this image is where the stencil had moved a little – I rather like the blurry shapes. I’ll use this piece to make another pouch once I dust of my sewing machine.
