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/
Mike, I was just reading some of the LMM news, and I saw your poster, the one with the hands.I thought it was awesome dude!!! Especially the description you gave of it... how our heart and soul ultimately must be expressed through our hands.... or feet LOL, that was good. Partly it caught y eye because the hand is a big part in my work, but mostly because of that comment. That is great. Tkae care.
I found Gary on YouTube and had been watching his videos and when he announced the site I had to keep watching. I was not a big watcher of YouTube, but thought that someone must have posted something about acrylic painting techniques. I realized that I needed some help and I found Gary. I saw how many people that Gary has brought together just for the sake of their art and passions on Ning… So, I could no longer sit on the sideline and watch. I have a hard time calling myself an artist, because Gary and so many people on this site inspire me to do more and be more.
Describe your style of art and materials you like to use?
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).
