Sarah I LOVE your work! Thank's for the comment! Seem's everytime I do a canvas for someone they want circles! This one I did for a school fundraiser but ended up on my neighbours wall, she begged me LOL! It was a quickie really! I will upload more when I get a minute. Your work has left me truly inspired, given me the kick up the bum I needed to make a proper website and business out of this. Thank you so much for appearing just as I needed a boost! Take care and stay in touch! x
Welcome amongst us and don't worry about being a real artist or not as we all ask this ourselves!Just keep on creating those beautiful work which i really enjoy as they are a great inspiration for my art!Thanks for sharing!
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).
