Thursday Printday was a bit of an adventure for me this week ... as I tried out paper screen printing for the first time. I've had a few people asking me for paper printed artwork so I thought I'd leap in and give it a go.
Its a suprisingly different process to fabric screen printing. The main differences being that the screen is suspended above the paper, the screen mesh is much smaller and the screen is filled with ink (flooded) before you actually print. So it was a little awkward at first for a textile printer ... but it didn't take long to get the hang of once I'd go my head around it.
You're only getting a sneaky snippet of a look at the design ... just a morsel ... someday soon I'll show you the whole thing.
