Screen Printing

Today I began some gift wrap sampling in the print room. Normally, my designs are all done on Photoshop and printed directly onto paper, but for my FMP I wanted to incorporate a bit more texture into my work and experiment with different finishes.

I used a single screen and printed a simple repeat pattern onto brown paper backgrounds. Using a different colour, I then printed a second time on top to create a shadow effect. 

Screen printing can be quite a slow process as the screen must be washed and dried after every few pulls, but after a long day in the print room, I am pleased with my samples. 

Next, I plan to sample using foils and metallic and pearl binder finishes.

Any feedback/ideas would be appreciated!
