I love the distressed look of the bottom red and blue. The contrast with the super neat and flat stenciled sky makes it look like it's not quite finished. (Maybe a few more layers and patterns of partial stenciled areas over the…"
"Yes, this is an image transfer with emulsion and photo face down, I used medium matt get, let it sit from morning till night, used water to rub off the paper, and this is the result I got, not too bad!"
I'm 'collecting' image trasfer methods: is this one the method where you place a photocopy face down on wet emulsion, and when it's dry you wet its back and peel it off till all the white paper is gone and only the ink…"
...and I like the wire frame.
My only question is: those tiny sharp cut ends of the wire holding 2 wires together, (even if they are filed and smoothened after the cut) - don't they scratch the skin or get caught in the…"
i saw many of yr demo videos on youtube in the last few months, and today i 'stumbled' on another demo shown on another site, with a link to yr website - so obviously - i'd love to be regularly updated and reminded whenever u upload some new techniques. (i have an incasiable hunger for new techniques and creative use of unusual/non traditional materials in art).

thanks for the comoment on my Guns and Watermelon piece :) The transfer method I used was clear contact paper. I've done other transfer methods but seem to have the best luck with contact paper or packing tape.
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).
