Minneapolis-based author Andy McInnis and his team are in the process of finishing up a book about how to start screen-printing in a snap and on the cheap. As many of you know, I am a bit of a DIY printer myself, so I’m pretty stoked to see if there’s anything I can glean off of it. It’s sure to be a great resource for anyone interested in the art!
Also, be sure to check out this video that he made about an ingenious way to clean a screen. Wish I had car wash nearby… Great stuff!
Spent some time this afternoon over the lightbox to touch up these screens. All-in-all things weren’t too bad… The “You” screen had some pinhole issues, but that’s nothing a little emulsion can’t fix. Looks like the guy has serious case of chicken pox though!
The “Me” screen only had a few pinholes to deal with but, unfortunately, on closer inspection, my third color artwork looked horrible so I had to fill it up and will have to get that redone later this week or next.
So yesterday I mentioned how the awesome folks at French Paper are, in deed, awesome. Well they are quickly reaching epic status now, as they have overnighted my replacement paper on their dime and on top of that they packed it extra nice. A perfect stack of paper from my favorite paper source! I think it’s gonna be good day.
In addition to the paper, I also got new fresh new screens made today! Unfortunately only one of the two screens made the cut, the other one (the one that will be the first color pass) wasn’t done very well and had to be re-redone… hopefully tomorrow.
