Disaster Avvoided

This small piece of fabric was overprinted on a piece of calico I had used to practice placement of some Indian wooden print blocks. The placements were OK but the colours and centring of the pattern werent too good. First I over stamped it with the medallion foamy stamp in a metallic blue from the Lumiere range. Then I thermofaxed it in turquoise with one of Jane's thermofaxes. This screen gets me into trouble as it is a lot heavier in its print than you would expect from looking at it. I was not happy. The solution overprint the white ferns from another thermofax screen. I did try the sliver again but it must be a translucent paint because it was not successful and I went over the initial print with titanium white
