Oi!  I love everything!  Especially the clock!  What kind of ink did you use?  I want to try screening rockets on vintage luggage that I have, but I'm afraid it will go mushy.  I have only tried screening onto fabric so far.  Do you make stuff to sell it?

I use water based textile ink for everything just because I do mostly shirts so that's what I have on hand. I've never sold anything. Some of the things I do I do for myself, most is done for other specific people, but a lot is done just to see how things turn out. Those things have just been given away to people I think would like it. The teenage girls in my life LOVE babysitting for us because besides getting paid they always leave with clothes or jewelry or something.  Grin  I have been told a lot lately that I should be selling my things but I have no idea how I'd go about doing it??

Thank you. The clock is an old record. I just spraypainted it and then printed the Beatle picture on it. I had the screen and was doing shirts and just wanted to see how it would turn out. I don't have a picture of the Angelina Jolie one I did but it was pretty awesome too. I love Angelina! Smiley

Most of images start out as pictures I pirate from the internet. Some are pictures I scan out of books or magazines and I've drawn a few (very few). I play around with the pictures, making them black and white and adjusting the contrast until I get something I like that's printable. So far I've bought all of my frames already screened. I put the images on them myself.

I've been reusing the same 4 screens for about 6 months and had to tighten the screen on one of them last week. Other than that I just wash the photoemulsion out when I'm finished with whatever I'm printing at the time. I have saved all of the transparencies that I've used so I can do more of anything I've done if anybody wants something they see.

Thanks everybody. It's nice to hear positive feedback.  Makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. Grin
