Screen printing is versatile, instant gratification! World-renowned surface design expert Jane Dunnewold demonstrates four temporary (or impermanent) methods for adding designs to a screen. Flour paste is easy and inexpensive and creates organic lines,crackles, words, and even drawings. Paper stencils are immediate and perfect for a short printing session or for printing single images. Water-soluble glue wit'stands several printings; it dissolves as you print, so every image is slightly different from the one printed just before it. Soy wax can be applied with a brush or a stencil,or even a tjanting tool. Once the printing is complete, hot water washes the wax away. Voila! Your screen is clean and ready for the next print run. Inexpensive and addicting, these screen-printing techniques are a must for the fibre-artist's surface design toolbox.
