...or Mono printing reimagined. This original technique utilizes fusible web to transfer your original painted imagery to Organza using metallic acrylic textile paints.  You will be able to create a completely new and unique form of art quilt. This process is unlike any other printing process, it is not a reverse process…what you see is what you get. This makes it a breeze to incorporate the written word and numbers into your imagery or to segue into abstraction. Bring a 16” x 20”  glossy photo quality of a close up of a favorite place, façade, architecture, or interesting still life for inspiration and interpretation. This is a technique at which anyone can succeed. If you've never painted can! Free your creative muse with this new and innovative technique.
