So I got two sample sheets of thermal screen in the mail the other day. I asked the company to send samples so I could try it out before I bought a whole roll of the stuff (which runs $150 and up) It works like a gocco screen, only you use a machine called a thermafax to expose the screen. Brilliant considering Tom uses a thermafax everyday to create the stencils for tattoos. He ran the photocopy of the milks (the large one) through and then ran it a second time because we have to play around with the settings to find the best one for that machine. The hard part was attaching the screen to strechers, because #1 the screens do not need to be stretched at all (hence the poor quality of the prints) #2 I was in a rush and just wanted to see how the screen would print. I think when I order a roll I am going to also get the plastic frames they sell to go around the screens, this will save so many headaches I am sure.
I took these photos last night after we finally got home from our long day out. The soap crayons were actually an easter present for Tom. We used to have a set in our old house and would leave each other drawings + messages on the shower wall. The kids like to use them too! The water is that crazy blue because of bath tints we have, also an easter basket goodie, but from B’s basket. He wants red water next–which may be a little gross….I’ll have to take a photo for sure.
