Printie Printy ^^*

This summer we’ve set up a home studio to edition relief prints and screen prints at home. You can imagine the expense of renting studio time at a local NYC shop so it’s been fun trying to set up everything we need in our living room. Check out some of the surprises on Instagram 😂

DIY Quick tips: 

  1. Always have a bowl of water & sponge handy for spills of changing inks.
  2. Power washers for screens are overrated, proper screen are can be accomplished with a good soak in degreaser, sponges and a Magic Eraser. (For emulsion many things like bleach or simple green work but I’m shooting for toxic free printing and using only water soluble materials)
  3. Never let ink dry in the screen or on your relief block/linocut
  4. Pick a spot to dry your prints and don’t let anyone touch!
