One of the best things about being back in an art department is remembering long lost tidbits from the cobwebby recesses of my mind. Information from fourteen years ago will pop back into my head as though somebody flicked a light switch. Meanwhile I still can't remember that I put a lunch box in the car five minutes ago. The dodgy short term memory is resulting in much driving back and forth for forgotten objets. However some old memories have plugged back in to have some fun.
When the teachers got new blank aprons last week, one suggested we do a little bit of decorating. I could not remember a thing about silk screening then it just popped back in. Flick!
The students are drawing lots of animal skulls at the moment so I thought I'd go down the sugar skull route.
|Cut it out.|
|Make a practice print to stick it to the screen.|
|Pull the paint across the top with a squeegee.|
|Get a little carried away with the whole excitement of printing something again.|
|Add some twiddly bits.|
The next one is going to be a few words I received on an e mail when I started working. I'm thinking it might be nice on a canvas but can't decide what colours to use. Thoughts?
