Screen printing

Last weekend I had 2 inspiring days of making screen prints. I've never had the chance to try it before though I've always wanted to and it turned out to be as fun and creative as I thought and wanted. 
I had my own drawings with me so the first process went really fast.


This is one of the drawings printed on plastic paper.



Then I exposed it under light a couple of minutes.



I did some test printings on cotton fabric, this one here didn't turn out very well. I did some more tests and they turned out pretty good.



I like the white against the black fabric.



Here are some of my test printings drying.  



I ended up buying my own set so now I can try it out at home too!

That looks like so much fun!! I'd love to try something like that one day. You have great drawings, by the way!

Ah, jag har faktiskt en silkscreen hemma som mamma gjorde någon gång på 70-talet då hon var som mest kreativ. Jättekul verktyg men satan vad man svär om det kladdar sig vid fel tillfälle :)

Åh vad kul Vanja! Men använder du den någonting? Jo jag kan mkt väl tänka mig att man blir förbannad, jag får väl öva in tekniken på en massa gamla tygbitar först antar jag:)
