Hello everyone! I have been somewhat preoccupied with business lately and I was not able to post any blogs recently. But as usual with another brand new screen printing tutorial video being uploaded to YouTube, I had to make a blog entry today to share the news with you all. I have been having a lot of fun making the latest videos and I think you will be able to tell. Things are going very well here in the office. Very slow but very well. On to this week’s video….
I had a couple of videos that I have been wanting to make for sometime and now that I have full control over the shop It has been easier to make videos as I wish. This is the first of 3 new videos coming up in the next few weeks. This one is called, “How To Screen Print: Tips On Reclaiming Screens”. It’s a quick tip video in which I use a cheat sheet for the first time. I wanted to remember all of the tips I planned to share with you and so I used a list to refer to while making the video. After forgetting things I wanted to mention in so many past videos, it was refreshing to be able to give you all the information I intended when I started the video. Making these tutorial screenprinting videos without a script is very challenging. But I don’t think I would ever change the way I make them in that respect. Using some notes is one thing but scripting the video would take away what makes it a Catspit video I think.
So obviously in this video I give some pointers and tips about removing emulsion form your screens after stencil use. This video was a long time coming in that I get asked this type of question almost daily. I figured I needed to make a video about the tips I have been giving everyone when they ask this anything related to this topic or reclaiming screens for reuse. I think this is a great video for everyone who is attempting to screen print using photographic emulsions. I hope I didn’t sound too confusing when talking about the chemicals. Make sure to read all of the annotations on this one.
