Starch Paper 5

I had read about using procion thickened dye for screen printing so here is my paper rendition of procion magenta dye mixed with the cornstarch paste. The print blurred quite a bit because the dye sat on top of the paper until it was dry - its behaviour was very different to paint. When I tried the same thing with fabric the dye tended to be absorbed through the screen print and into the fabric. See phot above
