Screen printing: The Second Class
Having finished our "homework", Mathias, Alex, and I were ready for our second class at Half and Half Designs. Alex traced designs from a child's coloring book. I used one of my digital images of a Pre-Raphaelite inspired stained-glass window in the Birmingham Art Museum. Only Mathias drew a design free-hand, an illustrated word, IRAQ.
I brought along some decorative papers, including antique end papers from an early nineteenth century book. The image here is my design on this paper. We were thrilled with the process, the class, and are looking forward to next week. Our assignment is to be prepared to create a two-color edition.
I've posted more photos on my "family blog".
