The finished print and the process! I am no longer a gocco virgin! Dad is on holidays and he came up for a couple of days for ping pong, darts and gocco madness.
So I put him to work. Dad's good at mixing colours- he's a printer by trade so he's well experienced with all this kind of stuff. Lucky him got the messy job! See I had the manual all set out in front of me making sure we knew exactly what to do. I always like to read a manual a few times so I really know what I'm doing. I'm a manual studying freak.
Get back to work!!
Here goes nothing...
Woohoo! It was so exciting to see the print worked. It was also interesting to see the problems we had and the things I'd do differently for my next design. Our colours ended up bleeding into each other where I couldn't put the ink blockout stuff. (For anyone that's familiar with gocco printing.)
Here they are drying in the racks. I am glad I finally got to use this little contraption.. I kept waking up all night thinking of what I'm going to do with it next.. now that I am more familiar with the whole process. We had a great time. Dad loves printing and all that sort of stuff so it was fun for the whole family. Thanks for your help Dad!
When I woke thismorning I had TWO packages in the mail- oh joy! I love mail! Especially when it's from people like Apak and Ashley G. It was nice to see Apak's gocco prints close-up since I've just done my own... and Ashley's buttons are to die for.
'Til next time...
