    Default First Screenprint

    Well, this is my first screenprint. I drew the image and printed it. One colour and a simple design to get started. The band are not officially linked to it but gave me permission to use their name. Its just for practice, not for sale or profit. I was thinking of adding anther colour or two. Perhaps the mouth and lettering should be different colours to the rest. It looked much different in the handdrawn ilustration.

    Anyway, all advice and cheapshots are welcome. i already know a lot of the problems. ive lost alot of detail, proably on his print due to sloppy pulling technique, washing out the screen too hard and over flooding. Other prints came out with better detail but this colour combo works best.

    You change the band name to a different color and that's gonna scream off of there, and will be a simple effective two color.

    Oh, yeah, what they said. I like it. Is that metallic blue or a crazy photograph?

    Its not metallic blue. Its just daler rowney card but the way the flash hit it, makes it seem shiney. It was worse until i angled the camera, hence the skewed view.

    i was thinking lava orange alright. Id love a fire effect but think thats beyond me. Is there an easy way to produce that?

    premium membership on the way

    try printing with say a neon-fire-red on the bottom of your screen and a bright yellow near the top (or left and right depending how you pull the squeegeee)
    The colors will mix together when you print, giving a nice continuum from red through to orange & yellow. Just be carefull not to turn the squeegee around through the run.

    like so
