    Default Cool tricks

    Lots of people output artwork onto vellum or transparencies by using a desktop printer or some other kind of printer, but I'd like to hear from people who output other ways, like, is there anyone who makes positives by hand or anyone that cuts out the middle man (computer and printer) and gets crazy with black india ink or black, black sharpies?

    This sounds interestng but I don't think I understand the question. I use transparancies in a lot of artwork (collages and so on) hand coloured/ drawn on etc,and then layered on papers and so on, but if you're talking about screenprinting then that's something else. Example?

    well, I was talking about screenprinting and like different techniques people use to make film positives, but I'll take anything. Even though your suggestion didn't pertain to screenprinting, I could still learn something from those kinds of comments. Thanks

    We ran out of ruby and cut a rectangle out of a piece of card board the other day. you can paint, draw, splat, brush, dump, cut, wipe, or do all sort s of things on a piece of clear or transparent film, then burn to a screen. the operative word is 'black', or if you ar feeling chatty....'blocks light'.

    Transparent or seethough doesn't do it.

    that's it. You are only limited by your imagination and your time to try different things.
