Successful screen printing session! March 13 2014
Despite feeling a little tired and hungover after a friend's birthday drinks the night before, I had a great day printing at the East London Printmakers studio in Hackney last weekend. The hangover soon went as the busy process of exposing my screen began!
It's always great to get advice from the technicians on hand – I have been so many times, but always pick up a handy printing tip when I am there.
This time I learnt all about oiling paper instead of using acetate.
The printing went well and the finished printed t-shirts looked super cute.For the first time I had a commission to use phrases rather than names for the personalisation using 'little sister' and 'big brother' for a couple with a new baby on the way.
Peter lion looked fabulous on a bright green t-shirt too.
I also tested out a simple Easter card idea with the popular Daisy rabbit character. See the finished results online soon.
