Print in progress: Getting weird with the chine-collé

Hey everybody!  Here are a few pics of the Virgen de Guadalupe woodblock I’ve been working on.  Last night I had the chance to test it out and pull some proofs!

My plan was to print the block onto strips of neon paper, so I inked the block in transparent red.  The transparent ink would appear to be a slightly different color on each different strip of paper.  I’m pretty pleased with how this effect worked out.

I then pulled a few versions with thinner strips of paper, which I liked a lot.  I think that is how I am going to proceed with the rest of the edition.

Woo! I'm pretty excited about this!

Woo! I’m so excited!

 

To finish this piece I’m going to trim down the strips to different lengths, and the paste everything down onto some nice rag paper.  And I’m considering adding some gold foil details.  You know, just to punch it up a little. We’ll see how it goes.  I will be posting updates as the piece progresses.

Screen printing on hand painted fabric. I’m pretty pleased with how these came out. My plan is to turn these into pillows. My only concern is that they’re too understated. I’m going to need to add some sequins, I think. You know, just to really class it up…God, I’m sophisticated.
