I took some photos today while working on a batch of these.
The skull image is on an old screen that was for another piece that I made. In the future I will burn a new screen that is just a bunch of the skulls.
My press is just Speedball clamps mounted in 1/4 inch plywood.
Here we go.
First I cut out the 1/4 inch ply into rectangles and sand it.
Hand paint the color. This is usually done before the wood is cut up.
On the press I made a jig to hold the wood into place while it is being printed.
The wood in place.
After the ink dries they are ready to be cut using a scroll saw.
After being cut out.
The back edge needs to be sanded.
Using a Dremel I sand the back edge.
Also using the Dremel I drill the hole for the magnet.
Now the magnet is glued in and set aside to dry.
