LOL K ! Sorry to bother you with that moving out/in story, it's just that it is getting on my nerves because i can't concentrate on sketching, painting, etc. these times. Yes, i keep in touch, do you have a blog ? Thanks again for your friendship :)
Thanks again K :) I've not been very active yet, because i'm not at home these months, moving from one region to another, not having my art stuff at hands, and i should perhaps have waited before subscribing to the site ! I love the textures in your art, and your creativity seems to be without limit :) How lucky ! See you.
Hi K ! Thanks so much for being friend ! I'm quite new here and still discovering, i love the photos i've seen on your page :) I'm not a collage and assemblage specialist but it's really fun to share and maybe experiment all mixed-media possibilities. "See" you soon and thanks again !
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).
