    Default Sketchbook Printing Process

    Well this is my second time ever doing the squeegee pulling and all the prep work. So I thought I would keep track of it all. Just finished the printing part of it the other night and am going to start binding them as soon as possible. Always loved process threads so I thought i would contribute.

    The link to the process.

    Its broken up between prep work and printing. So scan as you wish. I really made this to get some comments or criticism on my process and design since I'm so new at this. So hit me with all you can throw.

    very cool, good print, good process thread. I have the same exposure process, you can stick that light much closer and bring your exposure time down some. I am doing about 12-15 inches and getting around 6-8 minutes.

    If you would have printed white down on the background where you wanted the sky, then printed the blue on top of the white you could have probably got closer to what you were looking for with the cyan.

    Thanks. I will have to mess around with that. I know my exposure was about 35 minutes and still was a little underexposed.

    Didn't think of that. Thanks for the help.
