These are my first screenprinted T's! Check 'em outttt
The patterns are from the book "Indian Textile Prints" by Pepin Press-- such an awesome book. I took those designs from the CD, opened them up in Photoshop, and edited the pics so that each would make one cool single-colored layer. Then I filled the layer in with black, printed, baby-oiled them up, and exposed my photo-emulsioned screen with these underneath. Then printed onto the T's. Worked beautifully... I was so sad when I had to wash my screen out! I did these for my final project in a screenprinting class, which has been frustrating, but has def inspired me to continue the craftiness by getting my own screen. Any tips out there on doing photo emulsion on your own (without the cool things in the studio and darkroom, like the exposure unit)?
Any comments would be appreciated. Also, any ideas what to do with all these shirts?? Thanks!
