When you thicken dye a new world opens for you as a silk painter. In this class, using French steam set dyes we will:
- Make your own stamps and stencils.
- Thicken the dye so that we can print with stencils and stamps.
- Screen print without losing the hand of the silk. While most screen printing media can make the silk very stiff, thickened dye doesn't. The silk will remain as soft and flexible as it had been before you printed on it.
- Use thickened dye as a gentle resist. Once applied you can continue to apply additional layers of color and still have that initial application be visible.
