It all starts with a design.
My white paper cut flower field is the base and inspiration of this work,
That left behind us, it's time to move on and work in sketchbook and sheet.
It depends which effect you after what technique is best to use. I decided to use 'pen on sheet' for this design, it gives a scribbly result.
Fine, fragile and a bit wonky.
'Photo film elixir' on the frame,
magic light and you are ready to go off to get some printing done.
I really like multiple color designs,
but I don't have the luxury to work on multiple frames,
So i use good old fashioned tape to blind.
An incredible amount of work !
I mixed a few inks (base, white color pigments and a special liquid to stop the ink from clogging your mesh to quick), quite challenging to get the colors right.
Ink all set to fill up the mesh and print.
You win some, you lose more ;-)
A shower after a few prints is necessary.
This profession is a lot about cleaning up.
I use inks on water base that you can rinse under the tab at home.
Here you can see the scribbly effect. I like it.
And this frame here, is a sneak preview of my next adventure with the girl and the window!
Soon to be shared with the rest of the world,
but I worked so hard the past days,
I will take a few off to get back on track to run this household ;-)
Two of the best prints in this color scheme are for sale in my shop.
Details over there!
