Bunting Update

A quick update on the current project - which I've been referring to interchangeably as bunting, banners or flags.

Here are some of the fruits of many hours of screenprinting.  It was going badly; it got worse; and this week it got much better.  I think I finally got the right mixture of paint and medium, and the right scale of pull (individual instead of three at once).  I've had numerous trips to Fabricland and carried great volumes of cotton around town on my bicycle, often at the same time as poster tubes.

Of the good prints, this photo shows just an eighth.  There are many more that didn't come through so strong.  Maybe they can go in less prominent positions.  One hundred and nintety-two is more than enough for the main area.

Await photos of the hanging!
