Deconstructed screenprinting-Before and After

Gotta love deconstructed screenprinting! This image is from a plastic placemat. I laid it down on some newspaper, screened over it with print paste, let the screen dry, and then used purple print paste to screen the image onto the scarf. It's a temporary image on the screen, unlike when you burn the image on in regular screenprinting, but it gives great results. I'm very happy with the way it turned out. I didn't expect the image to be so crisp.
Last night, I over dyed it with blue to finish it up.

The blue really makes the purple pop, doesn't it?

This scarf will be up at the White Walls Gallery of the Corcoran Gallery of Art for a while. Afterwards, however, I may put it up in my shop, for anyone interested...
