Carrie's mom wanted us to try printing some fabric for future tea towels. She brought several samples of different fabrics up to the barn where we were printing.
And then she took them home and ran some scientific experiments on them.
These were all printed with our standard rubber based ink. And of course, we didn't have the motor going, we just hand cranked it. Still faster than inking by hand and printing!
The result: a lovely weathered look. I think the one with the iron first looks the brightest, but it all looks pretty cool! I think the best fabric was old tea towels and old sheets. We also tried corderoy and something else.
Now we'll have to think of a cool use for this fabric. Tea towels would be fun...anything else?
Thanks to Carrie's mom, Neda, for facilitating our experiment.
