PROCESS: Screenprinting "Flesh is Flesh"
I've been really enjoying screenprinting and have been able to use it for my thesis as well! I designed this print to be 3 colors but it ended up being 5. I haven't quite finished the print, but here are some shots from my late night print run last week. I ran into a good number of problems that I needed to trouble shoot this time around. The ink was drying in my screen, not coming through in spots, not the right color, etc. but in the end I had a few solid prints. My ceramics teacher has a good theory about why skills we are learning come so easily one week and then are almost impossible the next. She says that new skills need a week to go from short-term memory to long-term memory. So whenever things like this happen I just brush it off with the confidence that the next time I try things will be in my long-term memory and I'll be much better!
