Big Screen LiesPosted: April 5, 2017 | |
More screen printing! I’ve pretty much done a repeat of that I did last week, dye then print, then stare at the samples, happy dance, and repeat.
This week I was working mostly with orange and purple fabrics and I was trying to pair up the colours in my palette in a way that wasn’t boring or didn’t have much of an impact. While a lot of my samples are brightly colours with bold prints, I did want some more subdued samples should we say, just to balance it out. After all, not everyone bright orange, with some brilliant white and bright red, crazy right?
With my screen printing I’m trying to bring in the idea of layer. Sow when thinking about my jackets, I wanted to amore sure they would be warm, which means that needed layer, and what the model would wear, quite a few layers and just in general, when its cold you wear layers. Homeless people have many layers because lets face it, on the street, it ain’t warm.
So these are the ideas I was trying to bring into my samples. I have 6 designs on my screen, some I printed just on there own, but others I started to mix and match until something new arrived on the scene. Something cool and colourful and layered.
