A few weeks ago in Hilary's online class, we were playing around with creating and possibly using silhouettes. I posted about some pics I was using as well as a silhouette I printed on transparency film. I used it to overlay on top of a paper collage which you can see here: crow transparency overlay.
One of the ladies in our online group suggested I get a thermofax screen made and that's what I did! Actually, I had two screens made by June Dunnewold's online service. I have to say they were great at making sure the jpg I sent was going to work properly and then quick service!! I was dealing with K Wayne and this person was fantastic!!! I definitely would recommend their service if you want some thermofax screens.
Here is the willow thermofax screen (I had both images made in two sizes - 5"x7" and 8"x10" - finished sizes)
This is the crow screen better known as Bill's Crows, HA.
Hilary did suggest (after seeing some of these prints) that I should have had a reverse image as well. DUH! I may have to dig into the old grocery $$'s and get each image in reverse!
I decided to play with the screens and almost forgot what to do or, really, what to use! I started off with some paint but decided to use my thicken procion dyes instead. Of course, I/we always have some thicken dyes left don't we!
Sure...I figured I'd just go for it and print on top of one of my paper collages...wrong!
Not a good result but I can use paint and brush in areas to make the image better. At least I think I can!
