I have been so busy getting ready to go to the ISS screen printing trade show in Long Beach, California. In fact as I write this blog I am trying to print some tee shirts to bring with me and give away. Too many things to do in so little time. It feels like just a moment ago I still had a month before this event would happen. But now it is here and I uploaded the last screen printing video to YouTube until I return. Anyway today’s video tutorial upload was an experimental and very fun video to make.
The new video is called, “How To Screen Print Using Paper Stencils & Found Objects”. I had some totally rad fun with this one. Yes, I went through the “rad” era. Here we take a look at some paper stenciling methods and experimental found object usages. Many people have asked me in the past about doing a paper stencil demonstration video. This video will be the first of 2 paper stencil videos that I do. I plan on doing the next paper stencil video sometime in March where I will print out something from the computer and cut the stencil by hand with an exacto blade. But in the current video I show you how to make screen prints with store bought plastic and paper stencils. I also show you some ways in which you can use paper shapes or letters and other items like lace to use as the stencil. We even take a look using loose, found objects like confetti in this case. Yea, that’s right, I said confetti. I actually make a print with little pieces of shaped confetti. It had shapes like balloons, stars, squares and triangles in it as well as the word “PARTY” in caps. It was a lot of radical fun…LOL. It’s a totally experimental screenprinting video that will have you on the edge of your printing stool waiting to see how each print comes out. Make sure to check it out today!
