A little more screen printing

During my last trip to Goodwill I found 6 beautiful brocade napkins in perfect condition for $2. 

I had wanted to do some screen printing with some leaves from the backyard and I immediately thought these napkins were just the fabric.  This is only the first layer but what do you think of the six of them?

  1. These turned out really nice. I can't wait to see what you do with these next.

  2. I can see you have been bitten by the orange bug. Must have been transmitted by that orange sea glass!! I love your beginning and can't wait to see where you go next. Hope we will get a step by step.

  3. Judith, what type of paint or dye did you use to screen print these?

  4. I used fabric paint--can't remember the brand. One was gold and the other was copper. I sloppily switched from one paint to the other without cleaning my screen. I also unevenly mixed them with prochem extender base to make them a bit more opaque. I personally like the variance in opacity and shades.
