Studio Photos & Card Making: day 2

Since there is often quite a bit of down time waiting for screens or paper to dry, I thought it might be nice for you to see my printmaking space prior to finishing the screen show.

The slat wall helps hold many printmaking supplies along with journals and a mish-mash of items. The flat file draw was created by my dear old dad. It’s the best workspace ever!

Directly to the right of the flat files is the press. It’s often covered with a cat or two, but I uncovered it for the photo. More slat wall makes a studio very happy!

Above is the third wall (visible if you turn  a 180 from the press). It houses finished good  and items waiting for completion.

Ok, now here are the remaining photos from the botanical screen print extravaganza!

Screen filler applied in above image… below is after the washing out of drawing fluid.

I chose two colors for the background, robin’s egg blue & a green.

Here is part of the green run. Here is part of the blue run. I tried to print a dark chocolate brown over the blue but failed to make the ink opaque enough and it didn’t look good. Mixed in the black and it covered better.

Now I have the job of cutting up all the squares and placing them on card stock. Possibly a job for tomorrow.

Moby really enjoyed the sunshine this afternoon before the rain showers arrived.
