I wanted to get more of a texture from this test piece.
Although I liked the image that the body screen print produced I felt like alot of that texture and the contact with body and paint was lost! So I printed some background colours using plain screens ready for me to body print over the top.
The first colour background I decided to try and create the illusion of motion, using 3 different neutral shades and slightly overlapping each body print slightly.
The second colour background was slightly smaller so I decided to print the 3 shades directly over the top of each other.
I think I liked the first background a lot better as I could see the texture more clearly in each shade rather than just all being piled on top of one another.
When I decided to use acrylic paint to body print with I didn’t think it would be so hard to wash off!!
