Tracy, with better planning skills, had brought milk, tea and florentines, which were very welcome during the day.
|Hand screen used to overprint a coloured layer on the outline print|
|Half way along the first colour layer.|
|This shows the change from sludgy brown, back to bright green.|
|Overprinting at random, to represent confusion|
|Really starting to get the confused, obliterated effect I want|
Once I have the confusion graduating down the print, I plan to overprint again with glue and foil, using first the outline print, then the hand screens, demonstrating how the thought processes get disrupted by amyloidal plaques building in the brain
As I had finished all the area that needed to be accurately printed, I tidied up my workshop while I waited for the print to dry, and then lifted the fabric and rolled it back on to the cardboard roll. 8 hours well spent, and I was totally exhausted.
Tracy had a good day too, having mastered her repeat design, exposed it onto a trial handscreen and printed a couple of repeats on fabric. This demonstrated her design repeated accurately. I like working with Tracy. She has a calming effect on me, and asks sensible questions to enable me to clarify my thoughts (even if I scowl at her occasionally when her questioning leads me to conclusions that I don't want to do, even though I know she's right - like testing more colours before I print with them!).
