After discussions with Nicola Murray, photec printing was suggested as the best method for further developing ideas around the beach pottery. It seemed quite process driven which I like, yet I worried at all the steps that needed to be taken. It seemed all too easy to mess up. I had an initial induction with Nicola, then arranged a top-up with Brian of Printmaking. Both had slightly different ways of working so I could pick and choose and perhaps benefit from their experience.
Early printing experiences were not too good. That was down to the plates initially. Not enough depth of tone. The second batch completed with Brian's help were more successful. As for the actual use of colour and arrangement of the plats, that got better as time wore on. I started feeling more comfortable - in charge!
I am looking forward to more printing, perhaps with new plates next semester.
