Tsk Tsk is in the Studio
I was honoured to have the very talented Tiel Seivl-Keevers in my screen-printing class yesterday. Tiel is an illustrator, fabric designer, soft toy-maker plus a young mother of two. Tiel needed no introduction to screen-printing but wanted to refresh her skills to concentrate on fabric designs & prints this year.
These floral prints are an example of Tiel's unique style and you can see more of her work by checking out Tsk Tsk, her design company.
This beautiful white print was done on paper and only smudged a little because the screens (43T mesh) we were using were better suited for fabric. Paper generally requires a finer mesh screen and poster ink. However, you can successfully screen-print on more fibrous, hand-made paper with the fabric screens and Permaset Aqua inks.
