Morley morsels

Busy day today on the heat press, testing out the painted papers prepared last week.  The top one shows fingerprints and drops of water in lower left and cling film applied to wet dye on the top right.

I was pleased with the colour mixes and with the effects of some of the papers.  These prints are all on a lovely drapey polyester.

Underlayers of orange dye, with overlay of dark teal dots ( a serendipitous result of a an error - painting the dye on to greaseproof paper)

Pollarded trees in the Morley gardens seemed to be fitting in with the theme today.

Out tutor also referred me to the work of  Sally Greaves-Lord to study for homework, so lots to do.


  1. Some lovely effects here - love the serendipitous dots!


Thanks for your comment. I love to read them, but can't always respond.
