Intro
Timothy Veske-Mcmahon gives a demonstration of the hydrographic printing process, that consists in the application of a two-dimensional pattern or image to a three-dimensional surface. The artist will discuss the possibilities of adapting this process for studio and give some tricks. This workshop follows his exhibition "Ampersand", with pieces showing this process.
Demo Hydrographic printing for small objects
Hydrographic printing (also known as water transfer printing, hydro dipping, and fluid imaging) is a process of applying a two-dimensional pattern or image to a three-dimensional surface. Commonly used in the manufacture and customization of automotive and sporting goods, it can easily be adapted for use on small scale objects and jewelry in the studio setting. Each hydrographic print is composed of pigment on a water-soluble film which when activated, becomes dispersed and floats on the surface of the water. Carefully lowering an object through this dispersed print results in the image conforming to even the most complicated surfaces. Many materials can be used to print upon with the proper preparations including metal, plastic, ceramics, and wood.

This demonstration will show the hydrographic process and discuss the tips and tricks in adapting the process for studio use including how to prepare various substrates for printing.
