For our July meeting, we used the new Speedball water based block printing ink for fabric to print soft cuts. Soft cuts are stamps/print blocks cut from linoleum, carvable surfaces fabricated by Speedball, Marvy erasers, etc.
We had carved some of these in a previous meeting so this was our chance to actually print with them if we hadn't done so before.
Sue Clarke's, I believe this stamp was actually made from sticky foam shapes attached to a substrate (printed on a book page).

Sabyl's test prints, her Tshirt looked like the one on the left when it was finished.
Enid's leaf print on patterned fabric. I wish I had a picture of her other print, which kind of reminded me of a quilt block pattern.
I spent a lot of time carving this skeleton stamp during our meeting, but love the results, printed on vintage linens.
The ink has to dry for a week but says it is permanent after that time. I will probably iron them anyway. I printed some of my skulls with foil adhesive and will show the results after applying the foil tomorrow.
We had a fun day and had great results!
