    Default Quick vid of printing

    Just a quick blip of some of what I printed yesterday - the fourth color on a new print.



    I love how the paper is nice and sturdy when I lay it down, then it's like a wet rag after the pull, as I'm taking it away. It dried quick, but it felt so fragile at first.

    Also, for anyone curious, I used a 3-to-1 mixture of TW and Speedball blacks. When it dried, there was absolutely no scuffing on the blacks, thanks to the TW. And I've begun to really like the more loose consistency of the TW ink. As was advised here on GP, I made sure to spray the screen with some S-034 solution (I guess it's just like 409 spray) before starting, so that the ink doesn't lock in. And I also made sure not to waste any time. Been using this for the past couple weeks and really like it.

    Thanks everyone!

    Andy - Yeah, like a ball player, I realized it's a good idea to watch tape of myself pulling - I do get a little fierce with it. But I think it looks worse than it actually is. From the last vid I made, I realized my table was angled too much, and I wasn't getting a smooth motion - so I adjusted the angle to almost flat, and it's so much better. Using some house paint is my next experiment.

    Allison - Art Blakey on Sunday is kinda necessary no? If you're looking to get rid of scuffing, I would highly recommend the TW mix. But I gotta say, I still prefer the final appearance of straight Speedball. So velvety, and 'deep' i guess. Fair warning, that TW stinks to high heaven.

    Sliding - That vac noise totally kills the music vibe, but there's no need to be quiet where I am, so I never built a baffle or anything to kill the noise. Oh well - another project for the future.

    Print looks great!

    I usually just leave my vac on while printing, rather than turning it off and on for each pull.

    Pretty psyched - my three new art prints are finally all done (one of them is the one in the above video). Check em out. The third one is 9 colors!
