Colour Vie a screen printing product and Lutradur....

It was really interesting working with the Colour Vie pigments on the Lutradur. The pigments look great. I was surprised by how thin it is. Tried to do my texturizing using found objects, but I think the Lutradur was just a bit too thin for that. Below are the samples I came up with. In the screen printed Lutradur I was using an old screen from a musical (The Producers) I was working on. That was the summer I printed a lot of money:).

Hope this works for you!

Take care and enjoy our sudden summer weather!
