Some of the excellent 2 colour prints produced by the boys on their day with their teacher Barry Williams and helper Lyn Barnett.
Barry has brought his last class of year 5 and 6 year students to Homeprint for a day of printed words and illustration for about 12 years. Homeprint will miss his wonderful classes and enthusiasm for the workshop activity.
This 'Sunstrike' light box is my latest model. It has 6 x 8watt UV tubes and covers an area of 340mm x 320mm. It is suitable for both photopolymer screen printing and solarplate. The screen or plate is slid under the side ready for exposure.
This light box 'Sun Strike by Homeprint' was bought by Sandz Studio about 3 years ago for UV exposure to photopolymer silk screen or photopolymer solarplate. The screen or plate is slid under the box for exposure. I use a count down digital shower timer for my exposures.
