As promised, a progress report of sorts. I can now report that the printing portion of my fabric test run is complete. The process went smoother than anticipated and I am pleasantly surprised with the results. As is typical with blockprinting, there is variation between each impression but I like the imperfectness of it. Truly reflects that it was done by hand. Of course I couldn’t leave it at that. Me? Never. I had to take it one step further and fancy it up. So I added another step to this multi-step situation by hand painting some metallic gold detailing.
It is taking FOREVER but I super love it. The mr. likes it better without the metallic dots. Dumb. Who doesn't love a little turquoise and gold action? What do you think? Do you like the gold detail or do you like the dragon nekkid?
