I’m making heliographic prints again. I completely enjoy the whole process of creating these prints. With Setacolor Transparent paint by Pebeo, a Woodwardia fern cutting, a few simple supplies and a sunny day, I tranform white fabric into a one-of-a-kind piece of art. I’ve used a small amount of fuchsia over turquoise on this print.
The effects from rock salt and rice create a lovely texture. Just fuchsia here.
I made the fuchsia print larger so I would have some extra fabric. Here’s the last print:
The ferns are so dramatic all by themselves that it seems almost redundant to embellish them. But, embellish I will. I print so I can threadpaint — and that’s next. Time to audition threads. Come visit again and I promise you’ll see some of that work in progress.
