Thanks for your payment and registration for the Altered Book Projects Class. As I said, the course won't begin until the 16th of May (which gives you time to get some of the materials for the course) The material list is found on the same page where you signed up under 'Classes'. If you have any questions about the materials list let me know! I will be contacting you again when I am ready to open the class.
Sorry you have drawn the short straw and got me for Christmas! I'm not very arty as you can see on my page. Will do my best to send you a card that does not look like its been produced by someone in a pre-school class.
My address:- Summerfield, Middlefield Lane, Glentham, Lincolnshire, England LN8 2ET
PS Like your bookbinding type stuff - it looks very professional.
Thanks for coming to check out the site! I am sure you will find something here to help you on your creative journey. To get you started please have a look at our guidelines as this will give you information about how this particular site works.
Happy creating and remember 'Dream BIG No Excuses'!
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).
I love this product, their website is http://ezscreenprint.com/ (for full instructions and details on how to purchase this awesome product).
