in which our plucky heroine continues working on the kosode project...
<< The first three panels have been stenciled using white Jaquard NeoOpaque textile paint on indigo fabric. Stenciling is faster than shibori. Block printing is faster than stenciling. All three require quite a bit of advance preparation. I used a commercial stencil for this set of panels. The stenciled pieces will sit overnight before being heat set for permanence... Pretty happy with the subtle variegation of the triangles
In period, this sort of design would have been done with katazome, a stenciled resist surface design technique, where a starchy resist was applied to the fabric before it was dyed with indigo, leaving the pattern the original fabric color. For reasons of time constraint, I am simply stenciling the design with white Jaquard NeoOpaque textile paint, on indigo color linen...
After much digging through random boxes, I found the cutter blades that go with the handles for cutting printing blocks... Eventually the declutter and organise will make my life better, and I will be able to find my supplies and tools in expected places, but now I can get on with the carving the final blocks for the surface design kosode project
