Can you explain this process, and how you're printing from the positive image you've painted? Is it a resist process?
Hey Jodi, you can see photos of the process here:http://printoftheweek.blogspot.com/2009/12/skulls.htmlI make a stencil in the screen, and then paint with watercolor, or in the case of this entry powdered graphite, directly on the screen in the stencil area. Then I pull a print from the screen using transparent base instead of a pigmented ink. The trans base moves the painting from the screen to the paper.
A-HA! Trans base was the vital missing piece of information that makes it all make sense. I looked at your photos before and couldn't draw the line from what I saw there to the finished product. Thanks! I'll be trying this out soon.
