i love the movie _naked lunch_ and i was kicking around the idea of making a silkscreen for a while--i don't know why it took me so long!  i made it with my print gocco...this is the first print i made from the screen and it's a little janky, but i still think it's cute as a bug!

cute! i was just thiking last night how i wanted to try my gocco out on a tshirt. so far i've printed on felt but then it needs to be ironed for 2 minutes to set the ink..hence i melted a bit of felt. then got frustrated and put it away to heat set another day..hehe

i think doing a t-shirt will be much less hassle. great job

i've been having trouble finding the fabric screens in stores here, as i complained about earlier elsewhere...this is just a paper screen that i tore the plastic over sheet off of and it seems to work fine, but it didn't hold up as well to washing the ink off as the fabric screens--or maybe i was just not as careful as i should have been.  it's a little warpy on the edges now, but the mesh, itself, seems to be fine.  i think i'm going to make a bag with the screen today.

here's the bag, though i messed it up a couple different ways.  i think i'll make another when i get around to buying some solid-colored fabric because i do like the basic idea of the bag and i love my little screen.

it's not too bad, just a little messy.
what's the deal with the stamp set, SarahFroggy?  i never bought that part because i never understood what it was meant to do--how it was different from the regular screen printing with the gocco...

the stamp kit for cloth. is just an attachment that you snap the ink filled screen that looks like a handle so you can just stamp it instead of trying to cram a shirt or whatever into the gocco itself. also comes with fabric inks. but the sucky part is only red, blue, yellow, black., no white!!! i'd rather have white than black so i could make lighter colours. i wish i would have known when i made my order i would have got an extra.

there really wasn't anything to tute!  i just picked the quote and the clip art and made the silkscreen with my gocco and then slapped it on!  the bag is basically a messed up attempt at a jordy with a front flap...though, i have to say that for all i said i would make another, i carry that bag EVERYWHERE and am totally in love.  it really is sort of a mess inside, though, and i should really sew another one a little more carefully.  i'll get around to it.  Wink

here is a whole thread on the gocco--it's basically a cool little machine that makes silkscreeens from carbon-based art, like photocopies and such.  i totally love mine.  Smiley  i've worn that tshirt tons of times and washed it as many and it's held up just fine.  i didn't understand why people were suddenly commenting on it after all this time and then i saw it was featured.   Wink

ah neat! i'd been thinking of just getting a speedball silkscreening kit but the gocco looks like it might be better?

the gocco is a little more "automatic", but speedball is probably as good and cheaper...you have to work a little more, though...

so do you all who have print gocco like them?  have you used other screening-type things, or tried to make your own screens?  i'm toying with the idea of buying a print gocco, but i've heard mixed reviews about them, and i'm wanting to do most of my screening on fabric.

i LOVE the shirt design.  it's purty.  my boyfriend and i have that movie almost memorized.  and i actually almost did show it in class once... but it was to college kids, so it would almost be ok, right???

Wow that looks really proffesional, anything with a roach on it should look a bit "janky" and your font choise goes with that as well.

Looks like something I could buy in a store made to look a bit vintage and rough. I just ordered a Gocco Smiley

what is a good model gocco to use for silkscreening etc.?  (at what cost)

I am looking into getting one and i need some direction.  I have never seen/used one but i consider it for a gift.

Thanks

the gocco only prints on 4x7 or something like that. You could technically do a little work and make bigger prints, just gotta use some of your macgyver brain cells, so they sell some kinda screen add on for doing bigger ones. The BIG ones cost like $700. The normal one most of us get is like $115 at most places. I got mine from thinkink.com I think its called. They are very nice, atleast the guy I went back and forth with email on.

there are large-sized screens that fit into the small gocco machine and you flash them twice.  i'm not sure of the dimensions, but it's around 8x10, i would say...

Hi everyone!  It is great to read about everyone's Gocco experiences.   I love my Gocco!!

But, how many of you have the cloth stamp kit though, the additional thing?  I just got it in the mail, and I sort of feel a little disappointed!  I wish I had gotten to see one before I bought it because it seems like it would be really simple to make one by, say, affixing sponge to some sort of wood or hard object, and I'd rather have spent $15 for the fabric ink than almost $50 for the whole thing.  Granted, I don't know when I would have gotten around to making a stamper, so I'm glad I have it now, because I plan to use it!  Just, opening the box, and seeing it, I thought, hm, is that all there really is to it??...

 Huh

i just saw this movie for the first time about a month ago. i loved it. i read the book when i was in highschool and really i just never got into the whole beat/drug memoir style. but the movie was something else entirely. adore the stencil. might just steal it from you.
