Hello to you on this super sunny day. I have been offline for a while due to moving, but am back and starting to feel refreshed from the break away too ! Although am still in need for some un packing fairies to assist with the last few boxes of "stuff !" to be unpacked !
Whilst i was away i took the opportunity to have my first try on the Gocco !!
The very First attempt is in the bin, i panicked, the screen did not expose properly and i was without internet for any clues as to where i had gone wrong.
Second attempt worked out great, The Original drawing in black is what i used as my design to expose on the screen, before i exposed this one i sandwiched it between sheet of paper and ironed it, was told it has to be totally dry to expose properly.
With anxious breath i checked my second attempt and it all turned out fine.
Above you can see the screen that has already been exposed and i have applied some bright purple ink.
Now at this stage i had not thought ahead as to what i was going to print on, i had some lovely brown card so printed on this
I did however want the design for Greeting cards, shops closed i covered the screen in plastic and put in the fridge until i could get some blank cards, i had researched that you can leave your screens in the fridge for a while, i am not sure for how long though.
So here is the finished result, am happy with this, i like the simplicity of it, and its something i would buy.So all in all happy with this First - ish attempt.
I only have 30 of these cards though as i stupidly washed the screen to try another colour and the screen frame which is made of card got soggy and never re shaped.
I think i could have got loads more prints out of this had i not been so daft.
So these Gocco cards are super exclusive.
I plan a little giveaway soon and will have these available in my shop when it re opens in April sometime *
How do you like the first Gocco Print ?
I now have some more screens so will try a 2 screen design eeek !! and post up more of the printing process.
I hope is sunny and good with you, let me know how you are all doing.
