I'm reveling in absolute luxury today, as I collected a batch of fabric panels printed by someone else! It's taken me a long time to decide to do this, but the two-colour block prints are very time-consuming. My new plan is to have batches of a basic design screen printed in a single colour, and then to block print over them. That way the placement is already done, which speeds things up considerably. It also means that I retain some of the lovely qualities of block printing: the softer inking, the variable textures.
Here's one over-printed. What do you think? I kinda like it! I know it's sort of cheating, but it's so efficient.... they're still hand printed, just silk screened, and not by me. I'm also thinking of selling just the panels, over-printed and plain. They're A3 size, so that's big enough for a reasonable range of projects.
