debugging and developing


all tied up. now comes the debugging part.
have been  doing computer work too.

developing and studying pegplans.working on different varriations

     



also developing the image
     

 and the masters for printing using the print gocco, such great simple technology.we are still crying over its demise. but as the japanese live and work one century ahead of the rest when the products start catching up and becoming mainstream they are already moving on. think of the brother home knitting machines.

anyhow a brief summary of the process
make a photocopy of your image,  place it on the pad.place the master with the blue filter-to avoid scorching-in front of the master which is a heat sensitive mesh

 

place two light bulbs on the lamp housing head and  place it on the machine.

  


push down and the bulbs will flash producing light and heat and thus transferring the carbon of the photocopy and printing the image on the mesh


the image transferred to the mesh. it can be printed on to any medium; paper, textiles,whatever you like. the inks are oily and very tacky, but i have printed successfully using thickened dyes and textile paints.

now, don't tell me the demise of print gocco was not a tragedy.
