"ok, here's a try taken a couple of days ago after hand watering the veges that are being planted today. I got a new Canon t3i and am taking a class to learn how to use it. sometimes I think I am "getting it" and sometimes I see not.…"
Project Rauschenberg doesn't have the capability of adding photos yet but that is coming. Gary is going to be doing a series of instructional videos regarding Rauschenberg techniques plus videos that update everyone on how the project is evolving so stay tuned! Because you're a member of the Group, you'll receive notifications when videos are added. :-Donna
Hi Sarah and welcome to Project Rauschenberg! It should be lots of fun and stay tuned for videos on this subject. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
Have you been to the Project Rauschenberg channel on YouTube? There are already several videos there that will give you more information but do keep in mind that it is an evolving project and changes are inevitable. You'll be kept up-to-date now that you are a member of this group, though.
Thanks so much,

Welcome to my ning channel. Take your time to check things out. Lots of interesting blogs and posts not to mention alot of fantastic talented artists.
We have beginners and more seasoned artists here too which is great because we all learn from each other.
I am also constantly changing the site in terms of background, quote, poem and video of the day to keep things fresh, alive and moving.
Each Month i will be featuring a different famous artist and i will be posting challenges based on their work for people to try.
So welcome and look forward to chatting to you some time. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact myself, Mary Helena or Heather Campbell (my 2 administrators who assist me in running the channel).
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).
