Week 3 reflection

I think I got 2 and 3 mixed and mashed so I ended up doing a hand drawn design and a collage sort of design in the same print! But I finished the actual stencil and printing last module! as for reclaiming, I’ve made a home reclaiming set up out of my bathroom, and I…

Two colour printing

It was an exciting challenge to make these two colour prints on two tshirts and five aprons. There was a few corrections I had to make when printing because certain parts were not lining up perfectly so i had to tape spots off to allow it to dry and reprint the missing parts so it…

Week 3 reflection
