For the past six months I've been experimenting with a gocco. I haven't shared much of it here on the blog because I've probably had more misses than hits. As I've been pulling my winter range together though, I feel like I've been finding my gocco voice, so to speak. With all the experimenting, I've worked out what I like and don't like and the sort of results that feel like me.
What I do like is white ink printed onto colours - it somehow seems more subtle. And I also love the detail you can get from the screens. I love using the super-fine pen and creating really fine detail to the design. The fine check seems more interesting than say a solid white.
So I've been taking a few of my applique shapes, like this car, and turning them into screen prints. This one will go with a little winter scarf I've put into the range.
Next I want to turn a few of the digger applique's from Max's quilt into screen prints. Because after all, most little boys seem to love a bit of heavy machinery.
