CO mixed media club, July meeting

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).

Sue's print from Gayla's carved stamp.

Sue Clarke, Lots of layers, including a gelli plate print .

Sue Shenk's lovely flower garden

Gayla's prints from her carved block.

Gayla's prints in a different colorway. "Laundry line" carved stamp by Simone.

Simone's print on a Tshirt.

The start of Sabyl's print on a Tshirt.

Sabyl's test prints, her Tshirt looked like the one on the left when it was finished. 

Laurie's prints
This one was on a hand dyed fabric and looked really cool.

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!
