Currently Browsing: making prints from your sketches 1 articles
Last night as I was drifting off to sleep I realized that I didn’t fully explain some of my actions when turning a journal sketch into a silkscreen or Print Gocco print. I want to expand my discussion on a couple points today, as well as look at two other journal sketches that I happen to have on hand, so that you can see how they translated into prints.
Yesterday I explained how I traced my French Bull Dog sketch on acetate and scanned it. What I didn’t mention is that I could have just photocopied it on a toner copier. I needed, as you’ll recall a toner master, or final “copy” from which to burn the screen, but you don’t always need to go into the computer, and there are some drawbacks to doing so.
