{PHOTOGRAM} screen prints

I have been working on this for a little while, however am waiting until i settle back into doing studio work after a winter hiatus back in the drawing office.

Photograms are very basic ways to create images on light sensitive surfaces by using shadows of objects! I decided to try this using a beautiful lace table covering:

TONS 021

TONS 018

Alas, the result is a burned screen!

TONS 002

Some problems can arise with having a lot of stencil space. Too much ink can flood the other spaces, causing the image to smudge and smush. One way to solve this is to create a 3rd layer stencil, and tape off areas of the screen to use as a launch pad for the ink. I plan on using plastic sheeting to cut out various shapes, including a sweetheart top, to screen onto standard tanks.

I'll be back!
