Here's what I've been doing. It's just the start!
I'd already (digitally) printed out a giant Spider Chrysanthemum onto drafting paper to get an idea of how it might look scaled up. I had to scale it down a little from that to fit on my screens but as you can see here (I'm 5' 7") it's still quite big.
I decided to do a test print onto fabric in black and white. Just lifting the screen on and off the print table can be challenging.
Printing white. Lucky that I remembered to check the size of my biggest squeegee when I scaled the flower. Only just fits!
Lifting the screen is always a wow moment!
Now printing the second screen - the black...
and finally - well - just a peek!
...and to think that I grew this Chrysanthemum from a little plug planted in my greenhouse!
Next week I'm print sampling in colour - more to come on this...
...from my seasonal colour sample notebook.
