scribble


although i really, really would like a print gocco, it is rather limiting in size, and all those extra bit and bobs you have to have...anyway whilst trawling the net for some art supplies, i stumbled upon 'art discount', a fantastic art goods suppliers and they had this permaset screen printing ink. it's rather marvelous because it's eco-friendly, completely water based, and you can use it on fabric or paper for screen printing or block printing. for me, perfect. so i treated myself to every colour, and this morning set to work in my jim-jams. (because i couldn't wait, what a surprise.) inspired by my red 'plant life' in the last post, i played around with the 'scarlet' on various media. the best results were on photocopy paper (typical) and this lovely flecked oatmeal cotton. (the design is a really old screen from a million years ago, but a great background for all those layers i plan on building up!) next job: making more screens and playing around with all these lovely colours...does life get any better than this?

How are the Permaset inks to work with? The colour looks good. They arrived quickly too.

seems being creative in one's pyjamas is a common theme – I wrote a blog post about it last night. Its the best way to work. Why does a shower and getting dressed change one's mood so?
