Masking tape magic with Craft Punk


Craft Punk run workshops at The Powerhouse Museum. Their set up for screenprinting was so effective with three printing stations each using just one different colour. The screens had images on them already and there were some blank (open) ones too.

Who needs a stencil when good ol’ masking tape works a treat for one off stencil designs!

I whipped this up by randomly sticking ripped up strips of paper masking tape on the fabric.

Place the screen on top, pull the ink through the screen with the squeegee.

Lift off the frame. Peel off the tape and you get this great twig like, lightening strike effect.

Now what to make with the fabric…stay tuned…
