*I used Jacquard screen printing ink and Martha Stewart craft paint*Let's start printing! First, tape some paper down to cover your workspace from the paint that bleeds through the towel. I put a strip of tape across my towel, to help me keep a straight line while printing. You don't have to print up to the line, but it helps keep things neat.
If you're using a rubber stamp you made, first paint the stamp with a thin but even layer of paint. Then stamp it onto the fabric, applying pressure evenly all over the stamp. You might have to experiment with how much ink to put on the stamp to get the look you want. Reink and repeat to complete your pattern.
Printing more than one color is just as easy. Just print all of one color, then wash the stamp, and fill in the pattern with the other color.
Most fabric paints and inks have directions on the container for setting the ink once it dries, so it doesn't come off in the wash. It's usually just ironing or a run in the dryer first.
This is not the quickest project, but it's really simple and actually relaxing...since you're repeating one step many times. But the results are one-of-a-kind, and you can create so many different looks. If anyone ends up printing some towels soon, show me what you do!
