Placement printing

Remember this little spikey bush? I tried making it into a full repeat pattern but wasn't happy with the results. Next best option: placement prints!



A more cost effective way of doing a yardage print, with less commitment required :)

I reckon this would look good as a one off print on a girls smock or even a tea towel. Love it.

you realise this is getting unbearable seeing all these gorgeous prints! Does a yardage print mean that you will be selling this in small amounts? I really love this design. Also love the tote you've made.

Hi Michelle! We don't actually expose our screens in house at the moment - they're way too large so it would cost too much to have an exposure setup. But one day... :)

Melissa - I buy Gocco supplies from Eckersleys in the city, and I think you can order them direct off the nehoc website: http://nehoc.com.au/ (although for anyone else reading this comment, the screen printing process shown above isn't Gocco - we're just on a tangent here :))

The color choice was perfect. Is it a juniper color?

his is soo mazing to read about your studio and work. I'm inspired, and am about to try and get some screen printing equipment for beginners, is it a good idea to burn your own frames or get them done professionally when you are just starting?sympi

Oh just saw Cicada's post about a tutorial?? It would be fab if you could do one, please, please, please....! Did you used to burn your own, before you started with the huge screens?

it sounds like you might be busy one day making a tutorial BUT... i was wondering if you allow each placed print to dry before proceeding on to a print that might be close by. i'm working on a custom print for a quilt for my niece and haven't been able to solve that problem yet.
thanks!

Hi Anon!

The trick is to always do every second print first, and then come back and fill in the gaps once the first prints are dry ;)
