Silkscreen Printing!

For the past 2 Tuesdays, we have been working on our silkscreens in order to print our designs and it was a really fun experience!!! :-)

Didn’t manage to snap pictures of the initial coating and drying processes, but took some of when we actually printed our designs onto our totes :-)

Attempts on newsprint!

Attempt on the actual tote!

Applied adhesive to a board to insert into the tote, and flattened the creases to print.

Final product!

Was a little disappointed because it didn’t come out as cleanly as I’d like it to :-(
Also the half tone made the prints less obvious so some of the details were a little lighter than expected. Nevertheless it was still a fun process ^_^
