Title: Bugs, bones, wings, and things: my emulsion printing adventure!
Post by: sheepBlue on April 16, 2014 03:03:54 PM
I've been screen printing for the better part of three years since I learned how to in school, and have developed a bit of an obsession. Unfortunately I've been a bit limited since I work out of my apartment and have been very nervous to try liquid photo emulsion because I don't have a dark room or a perfect light set-up. But after biting the proverbial bullet and giving it a try, success! To act as my dark room.......a sealed box  :D As long as I don't open it until I'm ready to expose the screen, it really really works. Anyway, here's a bunch of pictures of my latest printing adventures as a result of photo emulsion!!

These are ALL amazing!  I want at least 5 different shirts from these screens!

As with so many of your projects, after looking at them, I need to pick my jaw up off the floor!! These are all incredible. You are so talented. I hope you remember us when you're a uber-famous fabric designer :). The poison shirt is my favorite!!

This was the creepiest coolest collection of screen prints craftster has ever seen! So happy it was recognized with a "best of" nod for 2014 :).
