Unlike last week, this week my digital print was successful. It’s not perfect; some of the ink was left on the transfer paper. Transfer paper is best known for making homemade witty t-shirts but with high enough quality there are a number of textile art applications. I think the overall effect of the transfer looks like old newsprint. The map wasn’t solid black to begin with. The newsprint look is appropriate because the overall piece is about the suppression of the history of the bloody slaughter of Australia’s Indigenous population. Also I intend to use reverse appliqué to finish this piece.
