Screen printing - my first prints of the century!

I started screen printing when I was in junior high and did it for about 30 years. My parents helped me a lot during this process. After my Dad's stroke, with the extra time spent caring for both parents, remodelling the house and moving, I didn't do any screen printing for 10 years.

I did not want to resume using the solvent-based inks I used previously, and I had to learn a completely different stencil system in order to use water-based inks. This winter I've learned to use CDF stencils that work with water based inks. I'm in the process of choosing (and mixing) a variety of new inks to get some of the same colors I used and loved for printing.

I've been reprinting some designs that have long been "out of print" and I'm starting to work on some new designs. Watch for photos of my prints of this century to be added as I finish new things.

In screen printing, each color is applied separately to each card (description of how I do it). Since resuming printing in Jan, 2010, I've finished 1360 cards and it took 9230 separate impressions to complete them!
