Oh! Gocco ♥

Love the weather today, not to cool and not to hot, it's perfect ^_^, It's weird how can the weather can inspire you to create.

Well as I've told you in previous posts, I've been experimenting with my new toy, unfortunately because I got really sick I didn't got the chance to finish the cute bunnies, but I'm working on them as we speak, there waiting to be sewn and stuffed ^_^

So Yes! I finally got the Gocco I wanted to badly, Willy got it for me 3 months ago, I didn't used it then because I was waiting for supplies (bulbs, ink, etc) and the Print on fabric ink set I got on ebay.

The main reason I wanted a Gocco is because it's easy to print on fabric, this idea makes me nuts!!, Imagine my own design on pouches, patches,bags,totes, and many more items!!! Yay! I'm really exited about it

These are the screens and that little bunny was my practice original, I didn't went with that design, instead I picked the bunny that has a mouth, both on them look cute anyways. The Gocco was very easy to use, the only inconvenience I had with the master was that some of the laser toner got stock to the screen when i burned my image, I used the blue filter but I think that wasn't enough, next time I'm gonna reduce the intensity of the toner when I print the original to prevent this.

Here it is, all ready to print It looks like whipped cream or vanilla icing lol, I'll show you the rest of my project in another post ^_^ because I'm so hungry and I need to grab some lunch, I enjoyed printing gocco, it was fun and problem free, can't wait to use it to print designs and patterns on fabric.

Well I hope the weather it's nice were you live :)
Enjoy your Day ♥
See Ya!

Yay, a gocco! Looks much more nice & compact than may big screens I use for my printing. And I love that you can expose it so you don't have to use stencils all the time, which is slowly driving me insane...

But I thought they weren't going to make Goccos anymore? You can still get them?

Oh and the weather is nice where I live, but that's actually not really good - we need rain! :(

At first I wanted to try normal screens like yours, but I'm terrified of them X_X I don't like it when I waste materials and I'm so clumsy and messy when I don't know exactly what I'm doing, so I'm gonna practice with my gocco prints first, If I get the hang of it maybe I'll try another method that allows more print space X_X (that's the only thing i don't like very much about print gocco).

The company stopped production but there still selling them on ebay, also the
SAVE GOCCO guys unannounced that a company will import the machines and supplies directly from gocco Japan, so I guess there is still hope with the print Gocco System.

Willy got the machine from this GOCCO EBAY SELLER
at a fair price and with very fast shipping with insurance ^_^ better deal than other sellers and individual listings.

ohh I love it when it rains :) over here, because it doesn't get that dry, I live in a Mediterranean semi-deserting area
