last silk screen class for now

Wow! Eight weeks just flew past and my silk screen class is finished. I was feeling quite nervous about our last class. I wanted to burn some images on screens that I could reuse on my own. If the process didn’t go well, I would miss my chance to do that. But the stars were in alignment and I’m very happy with the work from last night. There are some imperfections which I have since fixed on the screens. (We’ll see for sure next time I print them.) I used the gold ink again because it is so lush and lovely, and I tried the Speedball opaque black, which actually printed a beautiful gun-metal grey. I will need to purchase both of those colors for my personal collection. I filled the screens with images so that I could print them in full, as shown, to cut up for quilts or other projects. I could also mask off part of the screen to print just the section I need for a specific project. The large colored areas on the sides are areas I chose not to mask off because I love the look of the ink! I’ll post once I use these fabrics in a project. By the way, some of these images are from Dover, and some are my own artwork. What do you think of them?
