having fun...

...though i am still feeling so full of stress! i wish it would go away. here we have the first print from my very own silk screen! i used screen filler to paint the outline of the robot directly onto the screen. this blocks the silk and then in turn prevents the ink from going through onto the paper. it is a very fast way in which to do more freehand and experimental work. i usually work out all the layers and what i am going to print prior to going anywhere near a screen and use the photo-emulsion process to create my screens. i printed the robot outline using a colour i already had mixed up from the raindrops and printed a couple off. i didn't bother with a border but i think i will make a border round it later on. i also drew a quick alphabet onto the screen and painted it out using the screen filler. it kinda worked but i think i defo need to work on my lettering more. i also tried to draw some buttons as one idea i have for the robotington story is that he lost a button and the sewing mouse or lady is helping him find the perfect one. one with majical powers. i am allowed to spell majic with a 'j'. the word birds said i could.

Hooray, more robots :D
There's a really nice quality to the line you have with these free-drawn screens.
