I had such an inspiring and interesting day today at uni. We had to participate in this induction for, from what I can see, our state of the art digital print and screen printing facilities here at UCA Epsom.
After getting to know the basics, we were given a task to create a collage using Photoshop and prints. My group of three came up with this idea…
Here is our work in progress!
It was great fun, and we had loads of ideas! We were primarily looking through the images found in this fab book!
Here is our final print coming out!!
We were very pleased with it!
Hhadd some great music to listen to as well…
Purity Ring – Grandloves (album)
We then moved onto the screen printing process!!
We had to first clean the screens, then cover the screens with UV sensitive solution. We then cut up our positive photograph and placed it underneath the screen and exposed both to the UV light. We then printed through the screen to create our prints using magenta ink!!
My final outcome!!
As an experiment, we then printed over the top of the previous groups black screen print with our magenta print!
I’ve recently created another Tumblr account where I just post ‘stuff’ that I love, that inspires me, that is funny and quotes from my favourite pieces of literature. It’s a bit more fun if you like the sort of blog that is almost purely other people’s images and not being funny, it it makes me sigh with happiness when I look through all of the images so I would highly recommend it!
