Multiprint - Moonbirds, moon + Button grass
A one off multiprint using an early silkscreens of a flock of birds based on a lino print of a local grey currawong. Ive combined it with an imperfect circle and overprinted with my buttongrass screen. It looks like the birds are looking at the moon - and is a composition I have printed over the years many times on bits of wood but never on fabric. The base cloth is a piece of overdyed cotton sateen in a delicious carnelian red that I dyed years ago and overprinted it with muted olive, pale grey, copper and chocolate. Rather nice this one. Dimensions are 65cm wide x 66cm deep
The cotton sateen is a lightweight fabric. You would probably want to turn this one into an artwork or a cushion cover.
The fabric has been heat set so is washable. Use cool water with a mild detergent. After washing the texture of the fabric will show through. Its this worn in, imperfect look that we like best.
If you don't like the fabric as much as we do, please let us know. If you get in touch within a few days, we will be happy to take it back but would want a chat with you first, just to see why.
It costs AUD $5 to mail out to Australian addresses through Australia Post. If you live outside Australia, it will be $10
