Printing

Colour Project – Yellow, Part 4

The printing stamps used on these 3 pieces are based on the Maya glyph for “Yellow”. I found this whilst googling about yellow. Not sure how accurate the info is… when later googling “Maya scripts”, there doesn’t appear to be any single symbol for yellow, it’s more likely to be a combination of  several symbols. Anyway, it’s an interesting design to use.

I cut the stamp in 2 sizes from compressed foam sheeting, then attached it to a piece of polystyrene with double sided tape. This type of stamp is quick simple  to make and can be washed and re-used many times. The fabrics used are silk (top left) poly cotton (top right) lawn (above).

 

The next 3 combine purchased wooden stamps and my “yellow” stamp.
