OCTAVIA PROJECT

Silkscreening

Katie WalshComment

Today I am experimenting with a random drawing I did on tracing paper. The design is inspired by, the beautiful green side of Toronto. 

I am burning the design on to a silk-screen mesh. Using a powerful lamp and photo-emulsion, I can create my drawing or designs on to a silk-screen mesh to use like a stencil.

Once the design is burnt in to the mesh, I will wash out the left over photo-emulsion and let the screen dry before prepping for printing.

The fun and very messy side starts with choosing the colours, I am only using two colours today on a natural canvas fabric.

Once printed and headset, I will make these prints in to cushion covers. 

Keep checking back for the final product!
