|SILK HABOTAI; ORGANZA; CHARMEUSE GROUPED INTO 4 ROWS FOR INK AID (3) AND DIGITAL GROUNDS(1) TREATMENT|
I have been seeking to add silk to my Arbutus(Madrona) series as a top layer to replace the Tyvek layer. Tyvek has such good definition while taking well to my burning and carving manipulation.However, I would like to explore the different silks which will take on whole different qualities that I haven't even thought of yet. So I can't wait to start using the silks I have printed!
The silks I have used are from Maiwa (online from Vancouver,B.C.)--3 different weights:-Habotaii; Organza; Charmeuse. Organza is the most transparent while the Charmeuse proved to be the least transparent but the easiest to treat!
Ink Aid was used in three of the four treatments I applied (to one side only):-
White Matte; Clear Matte; Clear Semi-Gloss.
Golden Clear Digital grounds were used for the 4th treatment.
I have results that I will post on another blog so stay tuned!
