Gocco printing – steam railway and little bird!

I got out my Print Gocco machine for the first time in ages and did some printing. 

I took this photo of the steam train on the Ffestiniog railway during our holiday to Porthmadog in North Wales last summer.

I can’t remember which station it was, but I was up on the footbridge at the time.  We broke our journey between Porthmadog and Blaenau Ffestiniog and had a short walk through the woods, catching the next train back.

I printed another one on a Moleskine cahier and this time put some bronze embossing power along the railway lines, and heated it with my heat gun.

I also did a load more birdie prints, this time in browns and golds:

This one is printed on khadi paper.

And another one with embossing powder on a Moleskine journal:

Of course, I couldn’t stop there and there are piles more cards! Including these little birdie heads:

This is just a quick reminder that I still have about 8 fabric bundles for sale… and as a way of clearing some space in my studio the next person in the UK to buy some can have 3 bundles for the price of 2! Just pay with the Paypal buttons for two and email me to let me know which other one you want and I’ll mark them as sold. I’ll post on here when they’ve gone. You can find them here.

And I also have a number of Print Gocco machines for sale – I haven’t got any B6 machines but I have several PG10s and PG10 Supers. They are on my Print Gocco machines page.

If you haven’t the foggiest what I’m talking about, there’s a page of links about the Print Gocco here.

This is a card I printed with it. I really must get it out and print some more… they really are addictive once you get going!


Altering photos for Gocco/thermofax using Photoshop

Karen Stiehl Osborn has just written a tutorial on her blog entitled From Photograph to Thermofax. If you use Photoshop or Photoshop Elements and want to make a Gocco screen or thermofax screen and don’t know the best way to alter a photograph to make the best sort of image for it, check it out!

If you prefer using Paint Shop Pro, I wrote an article a few months ago on the same subject. You can find it here. There is also a link on my left sidebar.

While I’m on the subject of Gocco prints, I do still have some Print Gocco machines – PG10 and PG10 Supers – for sale, and have reduced the prices for April so there’s still a few days left!
