Printing on Fabric with InkAid


Paint fabric with any InkAid. It comes in Clear, White, Red, Blue, Pearl and my fav, Bronze.
InkAid secures a fine printed image and preserves it.
I've painted cotton broadcloth with a combo of Bronze and Clear. I like the variegated result.
I've ironed my cloth onto HTC's Trans-Web. This is a terrific fusible. I love how it doesn't show with silk organza.
The photo was divided into printable size sections in Photoshop.
I sliced the cloth lengthwise into strips the width of the each printed photo.
 Next, I sliced the prepared cloth into the proper width.
I arrange the sections into a pleasing composition- out of the order in which it was painted wiht inkaid.
Manipulated Photo
Next to print! The fusible becomes the carrier sheet. It can now be printed like a sheet of paper. I did iron them so they weren't curled going though the printer.
After they are printed, I decided to fuse them to sheet of stabilizer that is equal to the total size of all the pictures. This is another HTC product that they call it CutAway. It is a poly/rayon non-woven material I find extremely versatile.
 Ready to stitch my drawing lines, sew into borders and mount!
Tree Shadows

Finished!

Wen,
I was aware of InkAid, but not that it came in different colors. Where do you order it from? Thanks for sharing, your work is always intriguing and beautiful!

This is a really interesting use of two products which are new to me - and I think the work is haunting and beautiful too.

Thanks for the description of your process - looks great! I've used Inkaid white and clear with good success - much prefer it to Goldens' digital ground. I'm not sure bronze is available in the UK but will definately look out for it!

How do you divide a photo into 12 equal parts in order to try this tutorial? This is a facinating process!
