I went to a silk screening workshop at SCRAP, a creative reuse depot, this Saturday. We learned a non-photo emulsion way of applying an image to a screen and printing. The best part was that we got to go through SCRAP and pick out any materials at the depot we wanted to print on.
(1) First I drew my picture with blue screen drawing fluid and (2) coated everything with screen filler. You can see a ghost image of a dog/some circles – that’s just left over from a previous design and shouldn’t effect how my print turns out.
(3) Then I rinsed off the drawing fluid, which acted as the resist for the filler. The screen is ready to print!
(4) I then printed the image on a some fabrics I found, as well as (5) a typography calendar.
