"Its a single work with many parts. I started with a canvas that I painted red. I poured some turps over it and let it drip down the canvas and then went back with black spray paint and let it drip down which caused the cracking effect. The clock and…"
Thank you so much for taking a moment to comment. It really does motivate me to get better and do more. I do love to entertain. Please follow my blog if you are interested or my youtube channel liverson2. My blog: http://sansarianscripts.blogspot.com/
Hey Kari! If you are starting out in painting then you have come to a great place to learn. Check out Garys' videos in Groups - also Techniques at the top of the page. I have learnt a lot just through discussions in Forums too. Have been soaking up the great atmosphere here since early December '10 and it has been sooo much fun. There are artists here who are beginners like yourself through to others who have been "at it" for ages. Take your time and look around - I know you'll love it here!
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).
