printing on fabric with Versatex inks
  • I recently gave an all ages workshop where the participants created colorful images on white tshirt surfaces using the Versatex series of inks.
    The participants used monoprinting, stamping. blockprinting with styrofoam and direct brush to shirt application.
    Attached are a couple of photos that show a participant in the process of stamping a piece of cut styrofoam packaging as a shape over top of her painted design.
    The other photo is of a shirt created as part of the demonstration I gave. The other photo The background colours were applied as a monoprint painted on a plastic cutting sheet. The circular dark brown element was a block print cut out of a 1/2 inch piece of styrofoam and stamped over top of the monoprint.
    The final text element is a Xerox t-shirt transfer printed off my computer and adhered using an iron.
