There’s something poetic about taking an aggressive lyric from a gritty song, setting it in an elegant script face, and printing it will gold metallic ink. For this particular juxtaposition of class and thrash, Idiot Pull’s Tyler Deal successfully experimented with screenprinting metallic ink for the first time. The result could be considered oddly for designers who don’t like to deal with the financial side of the business, or just a fun piece to hang on your studio wall—though you might want to keep it out of the conference room where clients could get the wrong idea.

Project Description

This was a commission from a friend of mine. It's part of the lyrics of "Bunk Trunk Skunk" by Be Your Own Pet. The song is really grungy, but I thought a more refined ornamental design might be a little nicer. Plus he wanted gold-metallic ink and I had never done that before.

Production Lesson(s)

This being the first time I printed with metallic ink, I didn't know what I was doing. At first I tried mixing metallic gold powder together with medium, but that didn't work. I soon learned that if you use any powder, your screen count has to be lower so that the particles of the powder can push through the screen. In the end I mixed gold ink with a little glycerin and white to make the color you see printed.”
