Re: Gocco Printer



I hosted the Gocco exchange - we had 30 participants from the US and
austrailia and a wide range of work using different techniques. I was
thinking about doing an exchange once a quarter - it is good to have an
opportunity to push the limits of this little printer and have a diverse
group of samples to show students. I will post a note to the list for the
next one.

My experience has been that anything that is carbon based will work - laser
toner, copier toner, graphite pens, some felt tipped pens, etc. On the test
screen we did as a demo at my last workshop, we try all types of stuff on
one master - I put some text stamped with an old stamp pad, thinking it
would be a good "ooops, we forgot it had to be carbon based" example, but it
actually worked. One advantage to photocopying everying regardless is that
if there is any problem in burning the master, you still have the original
to create another.

Anything you would use silk screen printing for in a regular printmaking
studio you can do with this printer, just smaller scale and very quickly.

Best wishes,
