It was one of my first paintings. The reflections in the water...

So how can someone like me who...

trying to print my own products

While brain storming with a friend about how I'm going to get my artwork onto products without it costing my a fortune we had the bright idea that i could purchase my own printing press and do it all myself. So in my excitement I splashed out on a mug, plate, cap and textile press and printer ££££ and hey presto i'm a printer. Unfortunately I have never printed products before. So I bought the cheapest mugs I could get my hands on and nothing! The whole thing doesn't work! At thes point I realised you have to use the special...
