Today I began to print the final collection, I had previously mixed up the pigments and was ready to print. The first hurdle I had to overcome was getting the vibrancy right on the darker coloured fabrics. I found that adding white to the pigments thickened them up and made them more opaque however it altered them too far from the colour palette. Therefore, I found it more effective to print a white background and then print the design over the top. It allowed the vibrancy to come through properly but adds in another step.
