Sunday printing


A large part of Sunday was spent printing. I sorted out the registration issue with the 2-colour flowers; it's still not perfectly registered, but good enough. I experimented with adding opaque medium to the paints for printing light colours on dark cloth; it made the paint lumpy and dry. It's an interesting effect, but not right for these particular prints. And I still haven't run out of options with the colours, blocks, and cloth that I have, so I'll stick to dark on light for a while.
