rainbow with gold bowties | digital print
Teal and blue arches balance on a tower of red, pink and yellow triangles. A layer of all the gold bowties in the world shimmers on top.
Originally this was a hand printed, six-layer screen print. The arches and triangle layers were made by using shapes cut out of tissue paper as stencils. This process leaves a really interesting texture when tiny particles of ink passing through the porous tissue paper. Using tissue paper also ensures that the original print can never be repeated, because the water in the inks will break down the tissue paper after about 10-20 prints. The gold bow tie was hand drawn.
To make this a digital print, we scanned in the original screen print, brought it in to Photoshop to resize, and printed it on our own digital printer. It is currently available as a 11x14 print.
This piece was designed with easy framing in mind - we left plenty of white space so there is no need for you to spend time and money on custom framing. Just purchase a 11x14 frame off the shelf (we think it looks best in natural wood or a white frame) and you're all set!
