Screen Printing Bats
Time for my next screen printing adventure....this time with BATS!
I made up the stencil with randomly placed bats...and then got stuck in!
And that's when everything went wrong!
Some fun facts to remember when screen printing:
1. When you take it out to the line you will need to watch out for THE WIND which will blow the fabric onto itself which will cause RUIN! AND trees that will scrape along the fabric causing RUIN!
2. Once the fabric is on the line you can breath a sign of relief and walk away NOT. The wind will continue to blow the fabric onto itself causing RUIN!
After these lessons were learned...I pegged the fabric like this:
Much better...and only ALL of the fabric was ruined!
Okay I might have made one good print!
Me: "What does a Bat say Clementine?"
Clementine: "Nanananananananana BATMAN...oh no...Nanananananananana BATS"
One must not remain happy with the fabric for too long as the child will then run straight into it!
Another proud moment as Clementine is running around clutching a Charlotte Bronte book...which she later proceeds to rip a page out of....so proud!
The best print from the day:
