Silkscreen: FOWC 18th June

I understand Silkscreen to be a stencil technique in painting or craft design.
This is something I haven’t tried with my cards, but could well be worth exploring at some stage.
However, I vaguely recall a frame covered in something like a gauze at school which we put paint on and then slid a bar from top to bottom to disperse the paint more evenly and reveal the pattern as it oozed through.
All very technical, and I had a very interesting blob with feelers and feet.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I will look it up. I haven’t come across this technique before.

    You nailed the process. We used to do silkscreening in high school art class way back when.
