Trying the screens out

Here is the first pulls with colored dye with soda ash added.

I had so much thickened dye left, I went for a second layer.

I pulled green and blue through the screen but look at those little bits of golden yellow!! I LOVE this.

Next post washed out, ironed and MORE!


  1. Love your results, Beth! These are really neat!

  2. All of this screen print info has been great. Always a surprise, I can see why you enjoy creating them. Love the citrus slice prints!I wonder if people not in "our world" can understand the excitement when lifting a screen!

  3. Love the way that the different colours are showing through.
