Dye monoprinting day!

 I have some very proud printers this morning in my Saturday Silkscreen on Fabric class at Fleisher. We started the semester off by preparing our screens for monoprinting by painting sodium alginate and dye print paste directly on the screen. When the alginate dries it creates a resist stencil, but as it is printed it starts breaking down, changing the print as it goes. Since each print is slightly different it's considered monoprinting.
 This is the most ambitious group of silkscreeners I've had yet. They played with mixing dye colors and managed to print a basic repeat. This experiment will help them later on do a proper repeat.
