Tryin’ out the Gocco

This first one is my number 1 attempt at printing on the Gocco. It’s not bad, but there’s dots of carbon around the actual image from the photocopy I used. Oh well, you live and learn.

I learned from the Gocco-How-To link I posted a couple days ago, that you can save your screens and ink by putting them in plastic and in then in the fridge (just like you can with paint rollers!). So I did that with both of these screens and I’ll be using them again tonight.

These are my second attempts at Gocco printing. I had printed an image of these leaves but they came out super small so I printed several more, cut them out and placed them individually on a piece of white paper. I then imprinted them into the screen. I’m not sure if others do it this way, but it worked. The only thing I would suggest is that you somehow stick the separate images onto the plain paper. Some of the leaves burned to the screen and I was afraid of taking them off. I did, and it was fine, but I’m sure there was a chance of me making a hole in it. Don’t want that!

I made three 4 x 6″ cards, three 4 x 5″ cards as well as a 30 page note book. All on one screen with one round of ink on it. And there’s still more to use! I’m not sure how much further the ink will go, but it seems like there’s a lot left on there!

I don’t know if I’ll keep these for myself yet, or sell them on Etsy…we’ll have to see!

Once I build up my “stock” on these types of items, I’ll be listing them on Etsy.
