The screenprint setup worked a treat! Few tips for d.i.ying it I learnt, for my blog bros-
-making your own frame is a ton cheaper- you can buy offcuts of voile in fabric shops for pence and frames from charity shops. All under a pound for a screen
-just coat one side of the screen, it's enough for the other side too- it goes a long way
-print the acetate on a photocopier, the ink from a home printer never dries
-screening in the sun casts weird shadows everywhere, I exposed with a regular strip light inside, about 10" away for 40 mins
s'all. I printed on a tote, a shirt, some sketchbooks and tried to be truly rad and screen my skateboard, but it was too much, I got carried away. More to come!
