I Eye ManRay.. I Heart Him Too.



I've started to experiment with screen print.. I made a screen of ManRays Tears, I'm not sure of the title of the photograph.. Happy to report my screen worked on the paper Toyo Hood. I did a separate screen for the T-shirts. I did three Toyos and this turned out the best. The others are smeary. My next screens will be on felt hats. I also did a baby romper and T-Shirt from H&M.

It looks just wonderful! What a great idea to do a screen print on a hood... wonder how it will work on felt hats.
This Man Ray image is very powerful and works really nice wherever you may put it.

Cristina! Thank You, I love printed felts so why not straws too. I tried doing a stencil to air brush on Hats, the detailing was very difficult to cut out on the stencil plastic. The eye was merky and the edges were a little off. It just didn't translate well. So.. out came the screen emulsion and inks. Airbrushing with a less detailed image works too and the shading is the best... Try both ways I would love to see what you would do with it..
