Silk screen adventures with Mila - Buttons

Every week I take a Silk Screen print class at MCBA
I’m taking Kazoo on my journey

This was a collaboration of the students and the teachers

The bright wild background was a group effort. Remember the blog about screen printing with watercolor? Well it also works with crayons!
We all grabbed crayons and attached the screen with random shapes until we filled every corner of the screen. Then we transferred the colors on paper.

While the paper was drying we all came up with illustrations to print on top of the colored paper

The hardest part was operating the button machine. It’s confusing! Luckily one of the other students got the hang of it quickly and made 8 to every 1 button I produced. We ended up with a ton of buttons and my portion ended up on my jean jacket!
