Yet more Gocco-ing!

If you get the idea that I am enjoying playing with my Gocco, the answer is yes, I am!  Yesterday I printed two screens again, the bird and the angelica seedpod ones.    Once the kids go back to school, I will do some more with fabric, but this time it was mostly on card.

I printed some of these journals – a couple of them are already in my Etsy shop and the rest are destined for it. 

I also printed on some folded cardstock which I bought from Partners on Saturday, and on some postcard sized cards:

Gocco card - bird

And as usual once I got going I was printing on anything I found lying around, and overprinting on some previously printed stuff…

This is on some papyrus which I bought last time I went to London.

angelica seedpod on painted background

This is on matboard which I had previously painted with acrylic paint.  I am sure I will be continuing to develop this.

bird print on top of canal buildings

I overprinted the bird over this faint canal building print.

This screen is looking the worse for wear now but the vital screening mesh is still clear so good to go for longer, I hope!  I read on the Flickr Gocco group that vegetable oil is good for cleaning it, and tested this yesterday – it is! 

little pots

These are two very useful little lidded pots which used to contain a yummy chocolate pudding from Sainsburys.  Doubly useful!  Now one contains vegetable oil and the other holds the excess ink which I scraped off the screen before cleaning it.  On top of some Japanese newspaper which was used as packing material with the Gocco machines.  I have sold all of them now, except for this PG10 Super which is good for printing card if you want to line up two or more printings.  I have purloined this for myself!  But I hope to have some more for sale eventually.

I prepared a list of useful links and sites for Gocco information and soon I hope to put it onto a blog page with a permanent link from the sidebar. My experience selling with Ebay has been less than happy so I hope in future to sell them on my blog, having determined a price. So if you want one, watch this space!

    Thanks for the vegetable oil tip! This is much more inexpensive than the little tubes of Gocco screen cleaner. I can’t wait to give it a try!
