The Brooks Brothers suit done in a custom colour for a special customer
Step 1 in making a screen
Transfer your image to a piece of acetate
(Trade secret which I learned from studio mate Jeff: If you don't have acetate you can also oil a plain piece of paper to make it transparent)
After placing the acetate on a screen which has been coated with emulsion, turn on the light table and expose the screen for 5 minutes
Jeff uses the 'heavy tool box technique" for ensuring that no light seeps through.
TA DA! The s is for swing screen is ready!
This is what the final print will look like.
On the weekend I printed a custom Brooks Brothers suit in orange for a special customer request and also created the screen for my s is for swing print. Swing prints will be ready in approx. 2 weeks!
