It is actually a rubber basting brush! If you get your paint good and wet it holds a lot and slings paint really well too. Nice to use on a really textural piece. I have used it several times now and like the effect it gives me.
I have a few of these in different shapes. They are great for slinging paint, drizzling, scraping the surface and using it with tar medium. You can also smoosh it, drag it, whatever you can think of works great. Have fun- I sure do. You may have given me a new challenge- make a painting with just a basting brush! That could be interesting!
Neato! Post some art people! Identify what areas you used this cool tool for so we can see the application. I have never seen one of these before. I still have an old fashion basting brush. They have them at the dollar store? That is in my budget. Any other fun household re-use tools?
So once i have my image printed onto transparency film, I take my Ezscreen silk screen which has been coated in light sensitive emulsion (These sheets come pre-coated so they are ready to use). Place it onto a black board, then place the transparency image on top (this part needs to be done in a dark room with no direct sunlight). I take it outside and expose it for 1 minute and 40 seconds (but time varies depending on time of day and strength of sunlight). After i have exposed the image i place it into a tub of water for around 5 - 8 minutes. Then i rinse the screen out under fast running water until the unexposed area (the black) washes away. I then expose the screen to the sun for a further 20mins to completely harden the light sensitive emulsion.
And this is the completed screen ready for printing. I simply use an old credit card to spread the ink over the screen making sure i do one complete full stroke across the screen (holding the credit card at a 45 degree angle). I immediately wash the screen out under fast flowing water and pat dry. I use fabric screen printing ink which washes out in water (which makes the process easy).
