So, lets get started. Everyone loves Tom Waits right? Well to celebrate the great man being... um, great, I have printed these cheeky little chappies (who's better than a swimming pool) named for the song 'Ice Cream Man' from Wait's Closing Time LP.
And here is a process thread to walk you through just how the little dudes were printed.
Here are the images burned onto the screen at the print workshop in Mirfield Printing the first layer The blue layer drying on the racks Apparently though, it all got a bit much for Susan Boyle... poor lass Printing the orange layer I printed the orange layer onto tracing paper, to ensure that the registration was spot on for the print to be at its most ice creamery Drying on the racks After they were cropped they were then signed and numbered... ... and stamped The final product A couple of detail shots So there you are, another process post to give you an idea of what goes on behind the scenes of screen-printing. This print will be debuting itself at the 1st Draft exhibition tomorrow (Thursday 10th December) at The Merrion Art Market and will be joining another secret friend on Sunday 13th December at The Handmade Craft Fair at the Brudenell Social Club. The latter of which will have mince pies and other festive delights! Come along and say hello at one, or the other, or both, or all three!
