Sometimes you have to fail

3 Mar

I have been waiting patiently for a new order of screen printing goodies to arrive and now that they finally have I set about creating a printed t-shirt. It was all going so well. I created my pattern on the stencil, I filled it in….I did more than one sweep and my whole design was absorbed into nothingness.

Lets try this again! Draw image onto canvas, check.

Let dry properly. Check.

Fill in. Let dry for what I think is enough time. Check.

Rinse with water. Check.

Print onto t-shirt and remove…check….o damn that did not work! Image

With 5 more days of work imposed on me until the next weekend I intend to sketch image one evening, let dry. Fill on second evening, let dry, rinse out on 3rd evening, let dry. Screen print on Saturday. Then I will either celebrate or cry depending on the results of that experiment!
