Silkscreen printing at home

The hand in date for our first module is in a couple of days. I have been printing at home today to finish my prints ready to hand in.

The printing isn’t going as well as I hoped, I have lots of images all on the same screen and this has made it very difficult for me to print. I have been making lots of mistakes, as seen in the photos below, because my images are to close on the screen and when I put masking tape on them to block out the images I’m not using some of them still come through. In hindsight, it would have been better to have smaller screens and have individual images on each screen, so there is no risk of contaminating my prints.

At the end of this month I get the next instalment of my student loan. Once I get this I will contact the person who I brought my initial large screen from and place an order for four or five smaller screens.
