I had the chance to use 2 silk screens instead of one design! I was using a bass image and a television image for the work. I was working within the confines of my small room so I had to cover most parts of my room floor with newspapers.
After being more confident, I tried on silkscreening on fabric bags. Because of the lack in spaces, I had to put the bags on my bed. And accidentally staining my bed (look at the wet spot with tissue), the price of being creative. haha
Finally completed the works on the fabric bags, you can see that each bag is different in its texture and image even though it uses the same screen.
What's not in this post is the hard work place and the difficult moving of the screen and the swift swiping of paint across the screen. clearing out the screens to ensure that you are able to use it again. making sure that the paint has been spread through the whole image and that it is dark enough. The cleaning part was also a nightmare as my home toilet became like a murder crime scene. Instead of red blood, I had black paint splatted all around the walls of the toilet and also, the screen had to be cleaning thoroughly and there seems to be no ending on the amount of black paint I had to wash off.
One of the really craziest thing I have ever done: staining my bedsheet and making a disaster in the toilet just to create a seemingly easy work in making images on paper and fabric. Overall, It was still really really satisfying to see how beautiful the images come out and learn the different techniques to put in. Pin It
