Day: Late Feb’ish + Screenprinting

Posted by on Mar 1, 2011 in Blog | 5 Comments

Hamster sitting

A few weeks ago we were given a hamster to take care of! Her name is Mitsy. Weirdly enough, I have gotten into a habit of calling it Ham Ham and changed its gender haha. Not sure how long we will be keeping him in the residence but he is nice to have around!

Merchant City Market

Martin and me also decided to go to this Merchant City Market, which was by far, the most disappointing market ive ever seem. Not sure if we came late, or the majority of the market was somewhere else but I could literally count the some booths in this market on my hands… What we ended up doing was going into this bar called O’Neal’s and grabbed a beer while watching a soccer game before heading back.


At school, another skill students over here get to dabble in is screenprinting! They don’t do it with acetate (the ghetto way that i would think of doing it with) but instead, you have to put your design straight on the screen through this coating. Quite an interesting process which involves exposing the coating with your design on it to light so that the areas that are covered by your design washes off. This coating technique is called photo emulsion. Interesting but really but consuming stuff!

At the end of the screenprinting action, we also had to wash our screens with chemicals and a high pressure water gun. Malcolm was nice enough to volunteer to go into the green suit and do the dirty work lol.

On another note, we had another flat clean up party again. Man our place gets dirty really fast haha.

    Hi Paul,

    It’s been great reading your blog. Hamster is very cute. Edinburgh looks very interesting. Your pics came out great. BTW if you still have some $$ left, would appreciate it if you bought some hazelnut (whole pieces) chocolate – Freia or other local brand when you stop by in Oslo. Tak! LF
