On My Desk Wednesday :: Filling In The Holes


On my desk is my new screen, screen filler and brush. See the line? My piece of glass (used to weight image during burning) is smaller than screen but larger than image. Since the edge of the glass sits on the screen, it doesn't allow light to harden the emulsion in that area ... creating that line. I use the screen filler to fill that line and any pinholes.

I only have one scoop coater, which is to large for this screen ... I could have really used the help of that coater. Instead I used a squeegee to apply emulsion. I still have a hard time applying the emulsion evenly with a squeegee. Luckily, the screen still burned evenly.

Other players.

your screen looks interesting... do you expose your screens with sunlight?

THe screen looks very interesting - I hope we see the finished print. I am interested too as to how you expose your screens?

Tina, next time try using a strip of clear packing tape on the line. That works really nice.
