Interesting link! Yes, baby steps is a good strategy if you are feeling overwhelmed. Not putting pressure on yourself to get everything done or get it all right straight away is far the best strategy for enjoying life and growing skills.
thanks for replying... interesting, although I don't know who (or what?) Kaizen is? I do subscribe to the idea of "small is beautiful" as in the title of the book by Schumacher. I have always much preferred to work in very small organisations, where it is much easier to express one's individuality.
hah ha ha! Gary is the owner/Creator of this site!! so odd that you didn't know that but I guess not so surprising in that the site has its own life now and Gary (or Tobias as he now calls himself) is not as present as he once was.
Thanks for the comment! You will notice that same quote appears on your own page, it is put there by Gary not me actually and is an over all site setting... I am not at all sure what I think of it as an idea in truth!! I am glad you like my work and I look forward to seeing yours.
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).
