Blue Buddha Screenprint

I didn't know that there was a service out there that make your image into a silkscreen for you until I stumbled across it on the web. The name of the sight I used is Anthem Printing, and I highly recommend them. The process was so easy - I just uploaded my image and picked a screen size. A week or so late, the screen arrived at my doorstep.

Printing the screen was NOT as easy... print after print came out flooded with ink like the one below. After about 10-15 prints, I started to get the feel for it and finally made a decent print. Even once I made it to that point, however, I had to stop after each print to wipe the reverse side of excess ink. Still not sure what I'm doing wrong, or if I should have ordered the image on a finer screen. 

More screen printing to come I'm sure...
