While taking photos of my wares tonight I have been entertained with the lovely sounds of Steely Dan; Puerto Rican jazz style (much like the soundtrack to Broken Flowers) it's been rather nice, except for the random stopping, starting & cussing. (You other band wives know what I'm talking about).
So this is the fruit of my blessed gocco! Yeah! I don't really want to talk about it but, in this last run I have had 2 bad experiences with the goc. Firstly I had one screen not expose fully, which is pretty annoying because each exposure uses 2 bulbs & you can't re-use a screen & secondly the happy stump print came out a bit patchy on some of the scarves, even when I inked it up more. But I actually kinda like it. You can see it above.
Still, don't get me wrong, I love this machine!
So here we have 2 styles of scarves, happy stump & ode to owl, both printed on very fine knit 100% cotton. Happy stump wooden postcards (yup, I printed on wood, it looks great!) & cards & more owlie goodness on coasters. These still need to be lacquered but everything else is available in store now.
In other good news I am coming up to Auckland on Thursday, so everyone do their sun dances!
