The two images above show my twelve monoprinted samples. I used pens and various other implements -- cork and polystyrene strips amongst them -- to overprint the fabric in either black or white, The fabric paint was mixed with Fabric Medium and ironed for two minutes when dry to fix it. Interestingly the black fabric paint was more runny than the white which had a souffle-like consistency. Both worked effectively, but in the main black made a more obvious print even on more predominently black fabric.
For this image I have picked out four of the more successful prints, successful in that the printing seems to be an integral part of the design. Other results appear less intended.
