Sunprint Paper

When looking at any design that has been created digitally it is noticably too rigid and the clinical lines only lend themselves to certain subject matter. One way to soften the design or give an image more of a textural dynamic is to use photoshop effects, but these are shit and look cheap. The better way would be to screen print imagery, giving strong colours, accidental mark making, more of an anologue look and feel, this proccess is very lengthy and for all the time put in, it can be somewhat unpredictable. A nice little shortcut i have discovered is to put your imagery through a photographic proccess, utilizing special photo sensitive paper, this is very cheap and easy but can provide one with the desired effect in no time.
