I quite like this, even if it didn't turn out the way it should have! I think I'll have another play sometime, try and find a bigger piece of glass and different thicknesses of paint. I think they used ink in the tv programme but it was a thick sort of ink.

i have a piece of waterproof work top, scrap piece not my actual worktop, that I use, I think you can use acrylic paint, but what you use needs to have some thickness to 'hold' a shape and not just run all over, the fabric paints I have do but the silk paints don't they are way too runny,

also think in terms of background, as textiles they are not finished pieces, I also realized that what I put on the plate first came out on top because what you are looking at is the paint that hits the fabric first but what is on the bottom of the plate is on top of the fabric, sorry do you understand what I am trying to say,

I didn't put a paper backing on any of my fabric that I monoprinted with, it was a bit difficult getting some large pieces on the plate but I found speed was the answer,

all your pieces have potential and I love the blues,
