I have finished the big part of my screenprinting mid term. This is my fabric, i have 15 ft (approx) of fabric, and i dyed it with cochineal (a type of beetle used to replace red dye 3 in lipsticks and food) and aluminum acetate, and then printed the designs on. I then applied the devore paste onto the fabric. when you heat set it, it breaks down the cotton where you place it. it only breaks down cotton, so most of the printing is intact, and i put polyester thread through it on the sewing machine to give it structure.
