Printing Fresh

I printed a new colour to make a cushion cover. I have chosen this strong pink to cheer myself up on this cold day with grey sky.

Photo Emulsion Problem

I have found many pinholes on the screen - (so I've been filling the countless holes with photo emulsion)

- and did a lot of tests to find out why... probably the quality of photo emulsion was not good enough...

Colour Management

I have been struggling how to organise my ink & colour system, trying to make it easier to prepare exactly the same colour.

Sounds Like a New Machine!

The Sewing machine came back from overhaul and it works brilliant...!!

Good Old Sewing Machine

This is how my computer/sewing room looks at the moment. I got the yellow sewing machine last year but it was not as powerful as I thought, and then...

found this nice and heavy early 70's Mitsubishi sewing machine my mother used to use (...and it hasn't been used for 30 years), took it to an expert for overhaul. Hopefully it will be back in several days so let's see how it works...

Cotton -> Thread -> Fabric ... and a Lot of Labour

The first cotton ever grown and cropped in my garden (by my mother)! This should be real organic cotton (I guess) and I thank all the people who make my cotton fabric out of this...just amazing!

A Peek at the Scene

It's not in this picture but I got a large white borad the other day to cover up all the mess behind when I take photos of my products.

Something Abstract?

This is an amber film used in the process of making a screen.
