Improvisational Screen Printing with MX Dyes was developed by Kerr Grabowski and is used mainly by artists on fabric. It involves preparing a textured screen with thickened MX Dyes. After the thickened dyes dry, they are screen printed. Each print is different because the dye on the screen breaks down with each print. I used two sets of screens to print two different layers.
Usually I screen print onto fabric, so it was very different for me to work with paper. I tested several 100% cotton rag papers to find the one that showed the dyes best. Each print is unique. It is a greatly varied edition.
