Tape Resist

I've done tape resists and I've done tape resists, but this last one I did was really cool. I usually take a strip of tape and tear it jaggedly down the length to give me some interesting edges.




This time I decided to try something really different and it turned out much easier to set up on the screen.

I took out blue painters tape twice the length of my screen and taped it to my cutting mat.


I cut three long wavy lines with an X-acto knife then cut the length in half giving me 6 pieces to work with on the screen.

 



Absolutely love this and I could place the strips of tape very close together giving me thin lines of color.


Turquoise and chartreuse dye, YUM!

  9. Ah, love this one! Such a great idea to lay the tape down and cut however you want with a rotary cutter. I planned to experiment with screen printing this month, with the goal of finding designs usable for printing cloth napkins. I think I'll wait until January, so I have the benefit first of all your posts this month!
