it has been a couple weeks since I last used my screen printing kit. I am going to make a couple of tshirts and maybe a bag or two. They will be available on etsy soon. It has been several weeks since I last posted anything. my goal was to have a new post every couple days. Not quite sure what my problem is. I even signed up on wordpress to get weekly reminders that it is time to make a post—-jeez—-how am I ever gonna take over the world at this rate. I need to be less shy and more of a cape wearing, chin up, shoulders back kinda lady. I wish I was more of a voyeur with heaps of self confidence. I’m working on it—too bad I can’t build dignity out of clay.
Just printed this morning. The illustration depicts a rare butterfly sipping her sugary dew out of a daffodil. She is having a carefree flight among the flowers, shielding herself against the bright sun with an echinacea blossom…she plans out the rest of her eventful day.
I don’t understand why I haven’t ever gotten into this process before. I am not that excited when it comes to mass producing a product. That is why I prefer to use hand built methods over the wheel or mould. (I love wheel and mould work though…thinking about joining ‘the other side’) I love to draw individual themes and make each ceramic work really different. The temptation has been overwhelming however. I bought a DIY screen printing kit and decided to add some t-shirts to my etsy account—-and while I’m at it, I might as well make some transfers with underglaze and newsprint. This process is incredibly easy and I am digging the outcome. If anyone has questions about the products I used and the methods I would be more than happy to answer them.
