Thanks guys!  Smiley While I can't really say it was a ton of fun making it (my body is still sore from yesterday standing on my feet all day) I do love the end result.

I took an intro fiber class last winter where I did screen printing for the first time, though that was all low tech contact paper printing. The class I'm in now started in Sept and we've done a bunch more since then. This is my first project using photo emulsion though. It was so scary making the screen because I didn't know what to expect or if it would even turn out, but after doing it I'm not scared anymore and I hope I get the chance to do it again!  Cheesy I think next time I'll be even more adventurous with my design. The light color layer was done with the contact paper technique (after I screwed up my screen 3 times I had enough) and middle colored layer was done with drawing fluid/filler. One the black was the photo emulsion.

i know how frustrating it can be. i studied textile design in uni about 6 years ago and specialised in screen print. but i wasnt able to do anything apart from design until last year when ppl i know opened up a print studio just a bus ride from my house (i was over the moon when i found out!i'm just way too messy to do it at home). since then ive been kinda retraining myself all the old tricks but i love it still! i'd love to get to a point wher i can screen print lengths to sell  Cheesy

have fun with it, the more practise you get the easier it seems. and post stuff when you do  Grin

I wish my school would offer screen printing! And they probably will later on, but I of course, will have graduated. We have 2 profs now who are super skilled, but don't want to teach it because they know they'll turn into a t-shirt shop, which is not what they want so they refuse to let people know they can do it.  Undecided But seriously, I love the flamingos!!!
