Loco for Gocco.

6 May

Ok. It only took 5 months of convincing, but I finally bought my Gocco!

What’s that? You want one? Head on over to:. FeltCafe.Etsy.com

Liz provides excellent customer service and speedy shipping as well as an awesome Gocco tutorial (as the manuals that come with it are in Japanese)…

Well, after great deliberation I was editing a product photo at 5am Saturday morning and I had a Eureka moment and finally knew what I was going to print…

Here is my first Gocco creation: Gocco Thanks

And the bird came from a photo of this piece- which I created from a lovely glass piece that came to me from a dear friend in the Czech Republic. The glass is at least 80 years old, art deco (hence the lovely swirls and deep etching) and proved to be a fun subject and texture for my first screen printing attempt with the Gocco:
Red Robin Pendant

I do have the feeling at this Gocco thing is going to be a new obsession for me…I think we need a bigger home or I need to move to a studio before my supplies take over…

The good news? I announced yesterday that to kindly relieve my spouse and child of mother’s day gift stress that I will be ordering some pretty inks to use with my new toy… And they were ok with that! Yipee!
