A Marriage of Stencils and Fabric Arts

My friend Mary Ann Russo decorated each of these dishtowels with an applique made from a fabric print, having first created each print by using one of the stencils I've designed, the 9"X12" version of Mimosa --

Mary Ann's method:  She used Speedball Silkscreen Ink For Fabric to make the print, having first attached the stencil to her silkscreen.  She could have opted to use fabric dye, but she has found that if the artist wants a highly defined dark image, fabric paints or silk screen inks do a better job.

These are the two finished dishtowels -- too pretty to use!  Click the image to enlarge it.
