12:08:50 nubbins`: sold 8 so far, which should pay for the entire run of 100 plus a couple of prime rib roasts
^yay such retail skills


glad you fucked off and stopped polluting the logs with your smoke-addled nonsense

Looks like the #B-A cult is mad at Nubbins for daring to speak out against the divine ruler.

Sent you a PM! 35 posters spoken for, 65 remaining. Two layers down so far. Those of you who own a print from last year's edition and have spent time admiring the background sky/cloud layer will appreciate seeing what the same effect looks like with near-complementary colours.

Layer 1: blue/orange split fountain storm clouds












Layer 2: green grass







<weak trolling attempt>

This is actually a great time to mention that 90% of the screenprinting work we do is wholesale jobs for other artists and clients; silkscreen prints look and feel way nicer than digital prints, and for the size we're dealing with here (18x24"), they're actually way more economical, too. Most of what we do involves taking poster/print designs from independent artists and producing beautiful hand-made prints of their designs, which they can then sell to help support further art creation. It's a great way to get good, original, unique art into people's hands while also making sure the artist gets a fair cut. If any artists have any questions about silkscreen printing, shoot me a PM and I'll answer any questions you may have.

Price the thing in bitcoin and I'll buy one!

[This means remove mention of counterfeitables in the OP]

I caved! Please see OP for prices in actual units of currency.

One poster, roll shipped (N. America/W. Europe): 0.15 BTC
One poster, flat shipped (N. America/W. Europe): 0.2 BTC
Extra posters, each: 0.1 BTC

The third layer was pretty boring. This colour is called "puke yellow" and it looks like hot vomit on white paper, but has a really nice subdued lime sort of look on the dark green background.



Layer four was supposed to be a nice bright yellow, but the ink was just too transparent to get good coverage on a dark background.



Soooo, I scraped the yellow ink off the screen, printed the layer with white ink instead, then cleaned off all the white ink and ran through the entire edition again with a yellow topcoat. Here's a print with just the white underbase, and with the yellow on top.



Nice and bright!



Since this layer ended up being two layers and took quite a bit more time than I'd planned for, I entertained myself by taking some time-lapse videos of the print process.

Layer six:Blue!
Layer seven: (more) White!

Everything's happening so fast!



I'm waiting for the eighth screen to dry right now, planning to print that later today; shooting up layer nine and *maybe * layer ten tonight. Two free colours for everyone Smiley

I've also been considering adding a unique hand-coloured detail to each poster, but WE'LL SEE. No promises. Maybe if we get to 50 Cool

Couple of detail shots of the print thus far:

Got it, thanks!

Yep! Each print will be individually signed and numbered.

Layer nine: red.



Current estimate is twelve layers. I think I'm getting carried away Cool

Layer 10: pink.

You can really see the height of the ink in the second photo. Check out the shadows & highlights where pink meets white.



Open in a new tab to view full-size... There's no counterfeiting these  Cool



Looking like 13 layers total now. Sorry for all the suspense  Embarrassed

Sure, no sweat. Add an extra 0.025 BTC Smiley

UPDATE: more photos!

Rack full of prints!


Layer 11: beige. Detail layer, no close-up shots. Mixing the ink on the screen to work out streaks.



Layer 12: violet. Detail layer. No close-ups! Here's the ink getting mixed.



Layer 13: black gold.

This one's straight black mixed with pure metallic gold. Tough to photograph, but it shines like satan's gold tooth if you can get the light to hit it just right.



Before and after layer 13:



I think I only have one layer left to go. *Maybe* two. This is officially the most complicated print I've ever produced, and the final edition size will likely be less than 100, because it's very difficult to push a squeegee 4,000 times without making a few mistakes Smiley
