Another class and more to share. Class was packed with information and not enough time to do everything I wanted to! I arrived early and applied photo emulsion to 2 screens. Then I set up my print table and organized my supplies. Our instructor, Margo, showed us a variety of printed fabrics and we analyzed the placement of the print elements. Then we learned about lay-out and registration, necessary when you want to print a number of images in a predictable pattern. There was a lot of measuring and calculating and marking and precision involved. I wasn’t sure I would like this part of printing. Fortunately we stopped before my head exploded and we got to start work.
Here are some images that I prepared and then developed on my screens. One screen had a photo-copy image that I created with a basic circular pattern from Dover Publications. The other images were hand drawn and then photo-copied. The last image was created with 2 x-rays. I didn’t have time to print that one, but I’ll try it next week.
Here’s what I managed to print before it was time to clean up. (I printed on white on white printed fabric which added a little texture to the images.)
Now I’m busy deciding what to print in the remaining classes. Decisions, decisions.
