This week in Indigo class, we produced a stencil for the first layer of our screen print design inspired by Marcus Walters. We drew the design out onto moisture resistant card, before using a craft knife to cut around the outlines. This was fiddly and required quite a lot of patience! Once our stencils were ready we attached them to the underside of a silk screen using parcel tape. We laid the screen on top of a piece of heavy duty cartridge paper, then used a squeegee to drag ink across the surface. Some of us experimented with combining colours and got some interesting results! Next week we’ll be printing the second layer of our designs.
