i've been particularly inspired with the idea of watercolour type prints so armed with some watered down printing ink, i set to work using tools i had to hand. the first few i made using a paintbrush and lots of colour...i think i was trying to channel my inner bluebell gray but ended up with something a bit more tie dyed t-shirt...so i ditched the multicolour and kept it simple, stupid. & i loved the simplicity of the result.

|two colours - pink and raspberry, yum!|

i've used watered down ink, but any kind of fabric paint would work. it needs to be about as thick as single cream to get a decent print but without over soaking the base cloth. if anyone has a play, i'd love to hear about it and see some images!
