Practice Makes Perfect

Here are the results of the third printing session. This time lots of things went wrong. I’m finding it impossible to line up my prints accurately and am still having issues with getting a clean image.

I attempted to print white onto some lovely Japanese cotton bought on Ebay but I don’t think I put enough white ink in the base. The only successful piece was the  blue twig design which worked really well. Before I print again I’m going to have to do a bit of research on textile techniques. So far Squeegee and Ink have been really helpful and have been sending me some YouTube videos. If anyone has tips or advice for me it would be very much appreciated.

I am getting closer to making tote bags. Here is a mock up made with some black webbing. I love this look and just need find somewhere that does large amounts of the stuff.
