Here are Chris and Cindy prepping the water for their next prints.
The printed fabric was placed on newspaper to dry.
Here are some closeups.
I'm not sure who created this next one, but I love it.
And here are my four. The colors are a bit more vibrant than they look in the photos.
The fabric, a lightweight cotton broadcloth, isn't stiff at all. The fabric can be heat set with an iron, and is then fully washable. It could be used for so many things - if one can bear to cut it up!
Of course, a lot of prep work goes into this process before the class. Chris has to spend several days treating the water, prepping the fabric, mixing paints, and many other things. She does all the hard work, and we have all the fun. Thanks, Chris, and thanks to Cindy at Paper Crown for asking Chris to teach!
