Last printing day

 A hanji shirt, just for fun.
Practicing washes, split fountains, and then a slightly bigger hanji comic from the one on the shirt. I think I will bring these to Cleveland in October for my trade fair table.
I am so not a monoprint gal, but wanted to try the technique anyhow so that I could practice everything we learned over the week. Which was a ton.
The color looks funny because the paper is pink but after I got tired of monoprinting and didn't like the first color I tried with this screen, I mixed up a darker color and then called it a day. Five hours, not bad, plus some exercise since the elevator was broken. I am glad the mysteries of screenprinting have dissolved, though I am not sure how much I will use it in the future b/c I dislike the excessive use of tape and bleach (my entire outfit was ruined, even with a longer apron! I know, sounds like time to graduate to a smock, right?). But the important thing is that now a choice exists.
