VIDEO: Silk Screen Studio Tour!

My messy studio bursting with prints!

I had a little art victory at the end of last week: I successfully figured out how to burn new silk screen images right in my very own home. I used to have to go to an art studio with special facilities for this, but luckily, now I can do it without leaving the house! I was so excited that it went off without a hitch on the very first try. I thought it would be months of trial and error to perfect the process and equipment... Who knew it could be so easy? I was able to burn 3 images: parts one and two of a "Craft is Love" print and the "Lady Lady" print you see below.

Other than that, I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my first package of metal clay, which is supposed to get here tomorrow. I've been wanting to try this stuff for about a year, and I finally took the plunge and bought all of the supplies. I seriously can't wait! I love working with polymer clays, so I'm hoping it will be easy to transition to metal clay. I'm really excited to use a torch to fire these pieces, too!

Here is a scan of the finished "Lady Lady" print, up for sale here:


  1. Very cool! I love seeing artist's spaces/studios! Your work is fantastic, by the way!

  2. Wow, what a fabulous blog you have!! I look forward to your updates. =)

  3. Soooo-
    You won a pair of Holly Golightly earplugs, you lucky girl you! Send me your shipping info and I'll put them in the post.
    Thanks for playing!

  7. Tessa,

    What a "coincidence" that I found your blog today:-) I've been trying to make my own screens at home using directions from a place on the web I can no longer find! So, I've been exposing for all different times from 10 min to 2 min and it aint happening:-( Any thoughts?

    BTW, love seeing another "real" studio. Those pics of the ones all cleaned up make me burp!!!
