Guess what this is? That's right! It's my very first screen! I am now going to be creating my "Quilting Process" panels using the silkscreening technique. I have never done screen printing before but I have been reading up on it and successfully made two screens, the one you see here and one that says "LOVE" to be printed second in a separate color.
Here is my inked screen.
And the end result! I will be printing "LOVE" as soon as this one dries to the touch. I am very excited! You will be seeing lots of screenprints in the shop in the future. I am not going to stop making linocuts though because they have a texture like none other. Certain designs simply call for certain kinds of printing techniques, in my opinion.
