Here is some printing done with another stencil made with a fabric soldering iron. See my post 'stencils, soldering irons and inattentive mothers' for the story here.
I decided to use the letters of my name for the design. All the letters are right - but not necessarily in the right order! I needed to overlap the letters to make a good design, and since 'Hilary' is shorter than 'Florence' - which went on the 2nd line - there was a bit of jiggery pokery to fit all the letters in.
Of course, making your stencil this way, means you actually end up with two stencils - the positive and the negative of your design. Here, I have started with a yellow negative stencil, overlaid with a positive in red.
In the next example I have added some dark blue to the mix and inverted the stencil so some of the letters are upside down.
This time I've only used the negative stencil, but turning it through 90 degrees to give both horizontal and vertical text.
Here, I have first used the positive stencil - again overlaying horizontally and vertically - then gone over with a sponge roller.
I really like this last one. I've used both positive and negative versions in a kind of checkerboard pattern.
All the prints are done with procion dyes thickened with manutex.
