MY TEXTILE

CD
Mazes in my mind
Silkscreen on fabric
12’ x 4’

I drew a maze because I am always confused. I drew four mazes. Each maze is harder than the other.
I made a maze motif because it describes what mazes are and the way my brain works. I picked four different colors and each color means a different thing. I picked red because it’s a bright color and it is my favorite color. I picked blue because it represents royalty. Black because it’s dark, and grey because it’s a normal color.

I picked cotton as my textile because it’s soft. First we traced our design onto our silk screen,
then we covered the lines with drawing fluid. We put drawing fluid where we wanted the paint to go through. Then we covered the silk screen with screen-filler. Then we washed away the drawing fluid.
