NEON-CMYK

March 6, 2012

As I explained earlier (see here), I reproduced one of my prints with the CMYK technique, using both process and fluorescent inks.

In the first place I ran ink tests to make sure each layer would overlap properly

▴ process inks test

▴ both fluo inks tests

▴ This is the print that I used for my experimentations

▴ CMYK version

▴ CMY version

This is really yellow, so I might change the transparency of the yellow ink for the next prints. I find yellow really hard to get because both cyan and magenta are equal in terms of intensity but because yellow is really light I am always afraid to make it too transparent.

Next are the fluo and mixed versions… (please note that these are scans, therefore the rendition of the fluorescent colours is not true to the reality). I’ll use the following abreviations for the colours, fluorescent blue: B, fluorescent pink: P, fluorescent yellow: Yf, and I’ll keep C for cyan, M for magenta, Y for yellow and K for black.

The registration of the print isn’t really succesful, especially were there are fluo colours.

▴ BPYfK

▴ CPYf

▴ CPYfK

▴ not sure about this one but I reckon it is BMYfK

▴ CMYf

Yesteday I printed new posters (about 50x35cm) with the ‘stamping’ technique

☝ I am planning on reproducing this one using a CMYK process, but I will also make a series with blue, yellow and pink neon inks instead of the usual process inks.

☝ the films for the cyan (left) and magenta (right) layers of the print above. I got the screen ready and will start to print on monday

If I was to make more of these I would probably use an empty screen and paper stencils like here, rather than making the shapes on the screen like I did for the prints above (I hope that makes sense). This will prevent any ink leaking and therefore will allow me to have clear edges

caandides cmyk variations

March 1, 2012

I printed new experiments with process inks

I overlapped the cyan, magenta and yellow in different orders in order to create new colours. The idea behind this new series (which doesn’t have any real link to caandides) is to create as many colours as possible from the minimun of layers. What is on this post is the first round, the next step is to play with different transparencies and make use of gradients. Although I stated that it isn’t really related to caandides I still used their name so that I could use the prints as visuals.
