Screen printing on fabric with a hand-cut stencil and dye paste

The stencil and the part I cut out. I cut these from heavyweight stencil film.

First prints using a silk screen with dye paste.

I liked it so much that I grabbed a pile of fabric, gave it a quick soak with soda ash and kept at it.

A print printed off of the print. (say that 5 times really fast)
I was a little heavy-handed with the dye, so I pulled some ghost prints.

Another panel

Using a brayer to take the ghost print with a second piece of fabric.

Beautiful! I understand your addiction

beautiful pieces! question doesn't the fabric need to be dry to print on without it running? I'm new at this and can use all the help I can get. thanks

Hi Giesla,
I too am getting hooked on this stuff. However, I am doing one tiny piece at a time. I need to take an example from you and Gloria and start making a bunch.
Have fun! ann
