Started taking pictures after I'd already gotten started, so this might be a little iffy on the process.
1. Burned 3 screens: 23 x 31 230d. With two halogen lamps, that's 16 minutes and 30 seconds, but who's counting?
2. 16:30 is enough time to get some serious work done:
3. Washout. Note to future thread-searchers: The Karcher $100 pressure washer is effing wonderful. Washout is nice-n-quick, reclaim is a breeze. Best hundred bucks you'll spend (outside of hookers and cocaine)
4. My washout booth = daylight. I'm moving into a huge space in a month, so I'll be less ghetto then. Of course, I'll also stop printing by hand and start using my press - rendering this thread obsolete.
5. It's important to have a tidy workspace. At least, that's what I've HEARD.
6. These prints are 10" wide by 40" long, which was a little bit of a challenge. Luckily there wasn't really much registration to worry about - just setting up the paper.
7. Taped off, ready to go.
8. First color done, drying on my friend Andy RackDougal:
9. Had some paper remnants and ink left on the screen, so I pulled some lil art prints.
10. Registering second color
11. ...and done. That was quick, wasn't it?
12. Couple of misprints, drying. My emulsion started to break down pretty badly in the word FLAT. Mostly the A. It was at the end of the run, though, so no big deal.
I just finished the final color; they're drying. I'll post pix of the finished poster in a few minutes.
