I was given some Idye poly dyes, which are for dyeing synthetics and have been wanting to try a new technique with them.
Transfer printing involves painting papers with a strong dye solution, allowing them to dry, then printing by ironing off the dye onto polyester fabric. You can cut shapes and print shapes onto the fabric as well.
After this I started using some gum leaf shapes.
Since I love using synthetics in my work, this technique is most definitely going to find a home in my studio.
Lastly, here is one of the transfer prints I put into one of my collage a day foundations
I am very busy at present setting up an Etsy store (it isn't open yet, so don't go looking) and finishing my Tangled Textiles challenge which is due in a day or so. I am always a procrastinator, so I don't usually get my challenges finished until the last possible moment, but I will show you on monday or Tuesday.
