Reflective printing

 

There are many ways to create a reflective effect on textile. This is one of them, only useable when screen printing small quantities by hand. I chose to use a transparant binder, leaving the finished print half transparant. It is more common to add a metallic pigment to the binder; this will heighten the reflective quality of the print, but is much less subtle on the fabric.
