I’ve just put up my exhibition selecting my 6 best designs from my cutesy architecture collection, I’m very happy of how this collection turned out. Im glad that I changed my header for my exhibition as now that they are all the same size it look a lot more professional and finished with the addition of my logo on the front. And now that this is completed I’ve finished my second year of my degree which is scary and exciting at the same time as 3rd year is just around the corner so a lot more hard work to come.
This is all my designs in the custey architecture collection.
Screen printing colour separation is something I have always wanted to try but never doing it before, so I guest how to do it by making 3 different screens that each had what would be different colours on each screen. Also by putting registration marks on each screen you can make sure it lines up. I really liked this technique and think it is really effective at getting different colours within on screen print and I would defiantly want to do this again. furthermore I think it works really well for the company Rifle Paper and it has allowed me to create bold blocky shapes. Also I quite like how it has worked with just the two colour screens with out the black line work, which I could then take in to stitch and free machine on some details.
Screen Printing is a great technique that allows you to create one screen that can be used in a wide range of different techniques, however just the traditional screen printing with just pigment also gives I really nice print. Using my colour palette I explored different screen prints with the same image of a house. Overall I really like screen print however I think that these prints that I have done are a bit basic an need a to screen print over the top to create more depth.
This technique is really interesting, you screen print it like you do with normal pigment however once this is dry’s and you add steam to it the puff paste rises (grows) and you get this amazing texture.
I’m really enjoying these screen printing workshops, this flock screen printing is another interesting one. Its a great way to create risen texture on fabrics and a felt look. I would like to try this again for part of my final piece.
This week I got to expose my own screen printing screen and then went on to do some screen printing of my drawings of sea creatures using pigment. I really like this technique as it can transfer your detailed drawing on to fabric.
