To carry on a motif which has appeared in my work for a while now......i decided to abstract my rain cloud and print just the rain drops. I like the simple shapes of the droplets and wanted to do a rainbow version. This was actually done with one screen but i had to work really fast as i used my three mini squeegees to screen 9 different colours. I had to have plenty of rags to hand as each squeegee needed to be wiped to apply the next colour. It was a bit of a race against the clock as i had to keep the screen wet to avoid it clogging before printing the next t-shirt. This way i could only get about 10 t-shirts done before having to strip the screen. And with stencils this is a lot more time consuming than the quick wash that you could do with an exposed screen.
