I have dug out discarded old expecially textured paintings, I am getting more control over my "pourings" am now wetting the page in between the textures and guiding the flow into the grooves, having a ball,!
"Well Margo I really did not have that in mind , but now that you have pointed it out I can see how you have come to that conclusion , I am just so happy that you can see something that appeals in my work,"
Sorry I missed you in chat today! But just wanted to call by to wish you a very happy and successful 2012 in all that you do :) And I want to thank you also for being a valued apart of the LMM community! Love your work and your colour and texture combinations are fantastic !
Philomena, I'm sorry I missed your comment regarding my fish painting. I have recently had them printed on canvas in various sizes to make them more affordable. I am thinking of making cards. Thank you for your nice comment.
Hello there :) long time no see. How've you been? Check out the sculpture i made a while back on my page :) Ill try dig out photos of other art iv done since we last talked over the next few weeks. Talk to you soon
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).
