Assignment 2 – Screen printing on paper

Each of the samples in the previous 2 posts were started by trials on paper.   Much of the paper, depending on the thickness and quality, became distorted and the prints weren’t perfect.  Some of this texture transferred to the base of the screen and came through on the fabric prints.  It was easily erased by performing a second pull of paint over the surface but on print sample 2 (the blue pine cone shapes) I left the texture as I felt it added to the piece.

Here are some of the more interesting paper results.
