Week 4!

It's been a busy three weeks since my last post!

If you had asked me (before starting the fellows program) how to screen print, I would have replied with "...........?"

But after just a few weeks of working with Kay, I've learned the whole process! Woot!
In my last post, I talked about Kay's printing process and how to reclaim screens. And recently, over the last couple weeks, I have learned the remaining steps: coating screens with emulsion, burning images onto screens, and I was able to try my hand at actually pulling some prints.

That being said, we have been working on a four-layer CMYK print of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Since the prints have four layers and lots of detail, it takes a lot of fussing to get them to line up correctly.

Hence, a very serious me attempting to align the prints.

And, the prints in progress. Oh, they're blue in this layer. These are the first two layers, the Cyan and Magenta, printed by Tim (nice job!) We printed the Yellow layer today, which turned them green, as well as the Black layer, which included the line work and detail. 

I was also able to put some of my sculpture model-making skills to use and helped build a box for Kay! Kay wanted a cardboard box, designed like a house, that people can submit stories into for her to use for her project. She drew me a sketch of her idea, and I got to work!

Planning out the box- I measured and marked which lines would be scored and which would be cut. Kay wanted a slot on the top of the box where people could submit their stories, and a spot on the front that could hold a notepad.

Assembly- The box just folds together, and can be taped or glued from the inside, so the glue won't be visible. 

Painting the box- After putting a few coats of paint onto the box, my work was done!

And here is the finished box! Kay did the decorating and turned this little yellow box into a lovely home!
