Silk screening - hands on

I like getting in and trying things. Have been interested in silk screening for some time but haven't had the opportunity or any time until this weekend. Joined a weekend workshop with my friend Terry to force myself to make the time. So far so good. First day we learned about using drawing fluid and clay emulsion. drawing_fluid1.jpg Tomorrow is what I'm looking forward too. Worked on some acetates and hope to create some screens of . . . of course my favourite subject matter these days, my dream wr racer. Here's a preview of one background screen. Man, I have respect for the precision and detail needed to do this stuff properly. Back out again tomorrow to finish off. Hope not to waste a few Ts . . . wish me luck. screen1_0.jpg
