The auction for our paddles went better than expected and we raised a lot of money with our art.
My design of my ping pong bat has been finished after a few different ideas but I went with an image one side and type on the other. The printing method I used with medium gel worked well but the only problem I had was because it was like glue some of the paper would not come off giving it this misty effect that doesn’t help the print stand out well. I had to pen over some of it or keep soaking it until I can get the majority off with out scratching my design off.
Practicing printing my images onto a sheet of wood before I print properly into my bat. Sanding down my wood to get rid of any rough surface or any finishing that could be in there as this will stop my print from printing. Next I covered it in Liquidex Medium Gel which I purchased which is used for transferring laser jet or inkjet images from the paper over onto the wood. This method is really good but the colour doesn’t stand as strong so I will try and print over the top agin to bring out the colours.
