I wanted to create some interesting layered prints on fabric that will be the base for screen and linoprints and machine embroidery. I exerted a lot of energy turning the massive wheel on the large etching press ( who needs the gym) ! I built up layered monoprints with leaves to create subtle colours and patterns on calico and viscose/silk fabrics. The technique produced some beautiful delicate details from the leaves. I am looking forward to over printing these with screen print and lino as samples.
