THE RIGHT TEXTURE
Getting the texture and tone right took experimentation
I wanted the screenprints to look a bit like the illustrations found in 1960s textbooks, so that they would have a vintage feel but with a contemporary twist. It took months to find the right settings when making my silk screens and the process involved me preparing the patterns, testing exposure times and using the right amount of ink so that they were just transparent enough to hit the right tones when the different colours overlapped. Eventually, I got it.
