Cherie Blackwell "Suns and Planets No. 3: Jupiter's Transmissions" (2010) 12"x12" Image originated as a print on paper using layers of Solar Plate relief with Akua Intaglio Ink and polyester lithography plates printed with oil-based etching inks combined with chine collé. The print was photographed and then reproduced as both digitally-printed fabric and silk screened prints on fabric. Some of the fabric pieces were over-printed with Pronto Plate using Graphic Chemical etching inks. This technique provided an interesting way to build up unanticipated possibilities for textile designs.
