Stretching, degreasing, and printing, oh my!
My apologies for not posting the last couple of days but I have been very busy in the screen prinitng studio with stretching screens, degreasing screens to prep them for emulsion, and then printing another test design.I use the stretch cord method to stretch all of my screens. This way my studio is completely self sufficient when it comes to re-stretching the mesh when the time comes. It's also a lot cheaper than buying the pre-stretched frames. It's a real killer on the hands though. I did 15 of them over 2 days.
After stretching the screens I degrease them to get them ready for the emulsion. I'm going to do that maybe tonight or tomorrow. I need to make more room to store all of them.
Last night I stayed up till around 2:00 a.m. doing a test run print on another design. Again, I was very pleased with the outcome. I'm getting closer and closer to buying the over size transparencies so I can break out of this 8.5"x11" box that I have been working in.
