Fabric Dye on Silkscreen Frame
Dyes are painted directly onto the screen. When dry, paper is placed underneath and a release agent is dragged across the image. This re-wets the dye and transfers the image directly onto the paper. The whole image is transferred.
Thin layers of 'Open' acrylic paint (or inks) are rolled or brushed onto the 'Geli' plate. Registered paper is placed down and rubbed to transfer the image to the paper.
The process is repeated many times with different colours
to build up the image and reveal the many colours and textures underneath.
