Mushroom Cat Tote Bag
Mushroom eyes make for the best vision they say. This cat can see everything. A hand drawn and hand screen printed design. With a custom tie dye.
Screen printing is a very new form of printmaking. Using a scan of the original illustration, Erika then creates a print on film of the art. The image is "burned" onto the screen, creating a stencil of it. Then ink is able to be pushed through the open area of the screen with a squeegee, this prints the image onto the garment. This print features a "split fountain" , which involves creating a gradient with multiple colored inks on the screen. This allows for a multi colored print, only using one screen. After printing, the ink is cured at a high temperature to ensure it does not come off in the wash.
