I begin by assembling a variety of textures under the screen (bubble wrap, flat glass stones, rubber gloves, string, rubber bands, etc.). Next, I place the screen over the arranged textures and pull thickened dye over screen and let it dry. The dye dried in the screen becomes the image to print. I print using clear print paste (a sodium alginate solution – derived from seaweed). Each print slowly releases dye making each print slightly different.
