Beautiful Screen Printing Results

Artistic Artifacts owner Judy Gula left early last Saturday morning for the final 2016 Art & Soul event in Virginia Beach, where she co-taught a class and ran an on-site store full of many Artistic Artifacts new and vintage supplies and “creative finds.” Later that morning our friends from PG Fiber2Art arrived to teach their popular Printing with Thermofax Screens class. We captured some of the amazing surface design results to share with you here. Visit the PG Fiber2Art blog for additonal photos and details of the September 24 class!

Sue Price and Elizabeth Gibson of PG Fiber2Art

You can visit the PG Fiber2Art Etsy shop to order their ready-made screens from their own designs and photos, or order your own custom screen from your image! Many of the screens you see here are available to purchase. Artistic Artifacts also carries a large selection in our shop in Alexandria, VA.

Artistic Artifacts Fluid Textile Paint -- now available!

We were excited that Sue and Elizabeth experimented with our new line of Artistic Artifacts Fluid Textile Paint! Pictured above, these high-quality, semi-transparent textile paint sets are quick-drying and acid free: use on any type of fabric (heat-set for permanence), canvas, paper, cardstock and more. Primary I contains Blue, Red and Yellow; Primary II contains Turquoise, Magenta and Gold; and Metallics contains Silver, Gold and Copper. Mix to create your own colors — use our set of two Black & White for even more shades and tints!

These easy-flow colors join our line of heavy-bodied textile paint — also perfect for screen printing as in the following examples, block printing with our wooden printing blocks, and more — that is available in dozens of colors in opaque, transparent and pearlescent finishes.

Screen printed koi fish

You can achieve a striking level of fine line detail with Thermofax screens, as seen in the koi image above and the Ginkgo leaves below.

Hand-dyed fabric printed using more than one Thermofax screen

Above, using more than one screen, such as the crackle screen in the background and the fern screen, makes for a beautifully complex design on hand-dyed fabric.

Batik fabric printed with text-based Thermofax screen

Starting with batik fabrics gives a wonderful result, above and below.

The result of using several different Thermofax screens with different colors of ink and with foil embellishing

The above piece has various leaves screened in different colors of ink, with a crackle background. In the center you can see the results of pushing foil adhesive through the screen and then adding the sparkling metallic foil.

PG Fiber2Art will be teaching their Turn Your Photos into Thermofax Screens class at Artistic Artifacts on January 21, 2017. They will also be selling beautiful finished pieces at our annual Open House and Pop-Up Holiday Market on December 3, 2016: mark your calendars and plan to join us for the fun and shopping!
