Printing

Stitch and Print – 19th April 2021

My 12 ‘Postcards of the Collection’ have been completed, making 36 altogether.

These are the Stitch designs

And these the print designs. 

I decided to work these in red ink as red was the base colour for most of C18th printed fabrics. Different  mordants were use and when  mixed with the madder root (red)  generated a range of colours from pale pink to black.

I labelled and editioned each on the front

And printed onto the reverse.

My reading for the fortnight. I found the first time I had had work published in a book, 1989!
