Failure Print

August 6th, 2009 in Japanese

I decided to get my hand on trying my own Ukiyo-e style prints, instead of using woodblocks I decided to screen print them. Here is a failure print, this is the 2x trying to expose, I already know what I messed up on (The negative was DRAWN, not printed – that is the main issue). But this is really to just check out what I’ve been working on.

Screen, you can see some areas got over exposed (Missing right eye), not because I over exposed them, but because the ink in those areas were too transparent

  1. Drawn negatives are actually no problem to use, as long as you use a solid marker on clear film. The motive for the print was really nice tho, would have liked to see it printed successfully!
