Screenprinting the lilies

From my sketches of the lilies I cut a silk screen using a Gocco printer, ( A small japanese craft version of a Thermofax which will cut up to A5 size screens) the screen was then used to print with discharge paste on some hand dyed backgrounds. 

Quite pleased with the results as a first attempt.  The sketches therefore became white against the dyed background - not sure how I will use this in a piece  of work yet - who knows........

 I will probably try to screen with thickened dye next.
