After some experimenting (read about it here) and further development of my idea I decided to screen print my final pieces. Since I already had an idea of what I wanted in my mind, it was now time to start experimenting with the different techniques and processes.
I’ve spent a day preparing the image and the screen only to find out that what I wanted is not being accomplished. The print was too transparent, and the colour got absorbed by the black in the background. Apparently it was due to the heat (the ink was drying too fast), and the lack of opacity in water-based inks. As my time was running out at this point and I couldn’t go though the whole process all over again, I opted for a different (and hopefully quicker!) technique.
However, I did thoroughly enjoy the screen printing process, and even though it didn’t work out for me this time, I will return over the summer to do more of it.
