Frida Blue

And the last of the silkscreens of women artists that I am working on, the iconic Frida Kahlo. This is the first stage, after drawing the image gently onto the fabric with a soft pencil, I have painted the image with Speedball Diazo Drawing Fluid. Once it’s dry, the next stage will be to squeegee the Filler Liquid across it to form the stencil. This series of 8 women artists will be launched at the London Art car Boot Fair next Sunday, June the 14th. It’s over in the East End, in Brick Lane, if anyone’s in London on the day 😀

    What a good one to end with. How do you like working on the white screen vs the yellow? Have you felt a difference?

      Thank you 🙂 There’s quite a difference. The yellow is much finer weave and it’s being temperamental with the stencil medium, it doesn’t seem to stick as well as it does with the coarser screen. And it’s more fragile, I ripped one of them. Gutted!
