Printing on my black fabric

Yesterday I used the repeat screen and printed two layers of grey outline print on the black fabric, to give a general confused background. 

Today I worked into the fabric using the hand screen, using some dark grey binder, and quite a lot of almost white binder, to make the confused areas vary in intensity.  Tomorrow, Saturday, a few people from my class are going in, to work on our assessment pieces.  I plan to take in my small hand screen (must remember to take it!) and add a half drop repeat pattern in glue, so that I can foil over.  I'm planning to use some silver foil, but also some black glossy foil.  I've never used the black glossy foil, but I think it might look quite good on the fabric I've printed so far.

Also today I handed in my Historical Issues in Art & Design essay.  I chose to write about Grayson Perry, and his challenging pottery, which I think is fantastic.  I allied his work to the Expressionists (Dix and Grotz) and Satirists (Hogarth).  I've worked hard on it, and I do hope to get a good mark.  It's worth 35%.
