Oh I love it!!  The red bias tape + silver washers looks so much better than what I had.  I'm going to have to make another!

Jas.ns I bought the washers at Lowe's.  They have them in the specialty bolts/fasteners section (in the big plactic drawers).  Really any washer will work but you don't want one too big.  Something like this is what you want, http://www.acehardwareoutlet.com/productaddonsdetails.asp?id=56737&source=froogle

They are used with nuts + bolts.  They also come in zinc (silver color) or this copper color.  I bought a pack of 20 for $2 I think.  But I'm sure you can find them cheaper, but I only needed to packs of 20--so $4 was no big ticket!

+ spillyjane, can't wait to see yours!!

It's my pleasure!  And you're right actually, my sister does have a belt made with round rings with a scarf type material weaved through it.  I'm pretty sure it's the exact same weave.

I went to see the Josef + Anni Albers exhibit at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum and it was awesome. But the item I remember being most excited about was Anni Albers' necklace made with washers and grosgrain ribbon, here it is:



I wanted one so here's how to make your very own!  You need:
- 35 to 50 3/8" washers (10 washers makes 4.5" of necklace)
- Grosgrain ribbon 1/2" wide (3/4 yard or so)

Step one: Thread ribbon up from behind washer #1. You should leave about 6" inches of ribbon on the left end to tie around your neck.



Step Two: Thread ribbon up along the side of washer #2 and back down through the middle. The end should be threaded back through the middle of washer #1. (Still with me??)



Step Three: Pull ribbon tight so washer #2 lies flat against washer #1.



Step Four: Thread ribbon back up through washer #2 so it weaves underneath washer #1.



Step Five: Repeat process. Thread ribbon up alongside edge and back down through the middle of washer #3.



Step Six: Thread end of ribbon back through the middle of washer #2.



Step Seven: Pull ribbon tight to the right so you have all three washers laying flat. Repeat above steps.



Then you're done!!



Then me wearing it!

10  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Print Gocco Tutorial on: April 08, 2005 02:34:17 PM
You would basically just have to do the process all over again.  Expose a second screen and reprit the whole process (ink it, "stamp" each of your first layer prints, etc...)  So in this case, you would make a xerox of just the body of the cat and reprint them all.  I found the ink took overnight to dry but it's pretty humid here now.
