Usually, at this time of year, I take a screenprinting class at the local community college. The class structure gives me the extra boost I usually need to both design and make a huge chemical mess. This is also the best time of year for dyeing fabric: warm enough for dye, yet not too hot for me in the garage where I make my mess (and yes, my car has screenprinting paint on it...hmmm...just the color of blue on the raccoon shown above. Maybe I need to rethink car as drying rack.)
Vicki W. showed us the product "Color Magic" and I thought that would be a gentle way to slide into screen printing and dyeing. The screen printing part requires the most setup because I use the old timey photo emulsion approach.
So this is what I accomplished today: the blackout setup I need to burn the screen using photo emulsion. And with that, I am being called to yet ANOTHER disciplinary hearing...
