    Default Texturing Techniques

    I have had the itch to take some sandpaper to the edges of my film before burning a screen. Has anyone attempted this or a similar technique? Any suggestions?

    Also itching to get that great "dotted" and subtle "Print-Process-Marks" texture for backgrounds and whatnot. Any suggestions on that front?

    Thanks!

    I'm not sure about films, but you can try sanding and scuffing prints or photocopies, or whatever the original artwork consists of... Try it on a film! Maybe a brillo pad or steel wool would be good also, softly.

    I'm playing around w/ some similar stuff right now actually. I will post if I have worthwhile results. Also, I knew someone that used to get some crazy looking textures by scanning w/ the top down on her flatbed scanner but w/ no actual image on the glass. Seemed to work well for her. Good luck.

    My first acetate sheet got scratched up by the printer but I ended up using it alongside with the others - looked pretty good! It was a little scratchy and there were a few breaks but overall, I think it had a good 'texture'. Beats ruining your screen anyway.

    Where's that great American sense of innovation and expirimentation? Grab some films and some sandpaper and go crazy.
    Try an x-acto knife too.

    Wire brush works well also.
