If anyone is in the Stroud area around the 8th of March and beyond, you should go see this show, free entry and loads of examples of the different printmaking techniques out there.

There is more to prints than the inkjet  😉

Thanks for looking!

Sunday afternooning

DSCF2955
Screen Printing on Fabric, and mono printing using a small etching press
DSCF2960
Simple Screen printing using paper stencil to make a repeat pattern
DSCF2956
Used wiping, cotton buds, and plant material, and taking a second print so sometimes got a positive and negative, when using things like plant bits.

 

I was invited to attend a little gathering at the Print co operative I recently joined, to meet with some of the other new members. Tea ,chatting and a bit of print making, jolly good Sunday afternoon I think !

Final Print Images

These are the three final prints I put up in the  my degree show

( well versions of them, they vary slightly),

these are just printed cleanly without too much added.

 I shall upload images of the slightly different versions, and hopefully with links to my etsy shop where you can purchase your very own copy!  Soooon!

Copper plate in process, #2

Detail of proof of #2 plate

 

This is a detail of one of three (soon to be four) large copper plates ( about A2 size) that I am working on at the moment, and the first proof of it after  etching  to add more lines. they are going well if slowly!

I have tried to exaggerate the perspectives of the trees to emphasise  some of the extraordinary shapes  they make, and have been using a new process for me, sugar lift then spit biting.
