The Leeway Residency: Screen Printing Too

The screen prints pictured here are tests to see how the paper I use in my paper cutting work will take to the ink. I wanted to see how much this type of paper would warp, and what it will be like to cut with the ink on its surface. It has actually held up pretty well.

I cut two of the same stencils using a compass cutter and didn’t worry too much about a design. This is four layers of ink using the two stencils. I used the same colours as with the previous batch of prints.

The next step is to see what this paper is like to cut.
