Design Play: Circuit Project – More grids

Loved the grid experiments in my last post so continued down this path this week with some great results.

Sequin waste was cut to shape and placed over an inked acetate sheet.  This was run through the press and the sequin waste removed.  A ghost print was taken from the acetate plate.

The initial image above shows the resist from the sequin waste on the first pass.  The second image is from the acetate after the material has been removed.  Below these is a close-up of the texture on the print.

Plastic fly-screen had sections removed before being used as a resist, using the same method as above.  A print was then taken of the inked fly-screen itself.

As the fly-screen is so dense no ink was transferred between the mesh grid when using it as a resist.

A print was taken from the acetate plate (below left).  The right print below shows the addition of the inked sequin waste from the first experiment added as another layer.

Again, a close-up of the texture is shown above.  By using a dark olive green for the fly-screen print and black on the sequin waste the overlaid components become visible without one dominating the other.

Excellent results.  Ready to start on my book page prints now.
