SAMPLES FOR F.M.P.
Here are some samples of some marbling I tried on both fabric and cartridge paper.
I really like the effect as it looks slightly distressed yet visually striking, and it is this type of rough texture I wanted to screen print foils onto. The 'foilco' website (http://www.foilco.co.uk/) will send free samples on request, so I have asked for gold, black, clear and also any peacock-looking coloured metallic foil to be sent, which I will be using over these backgrounds. I originally wanted to achive a streaky tie-dye effect similar to the Vivienne Westwood bag shown below, so hopefully experimentation in next weeks workshop will help me to achieve this.
