Authors : Mohd Fauzi Sedon, Tajul Shuhaizam Said, Harozila Ramli and Siti Fazlina Isnin

Abstract: This presentation will demonstrate the making process of ‘Eco-Paste’ as an alternative medium that utilizes the natural clay and recycle material into useful water-based screen-printing medium. It will then present ways to form the basis for researching ideas through the concept of combining natural and recycle material to develop an alternative medium which is flexible, inexpensive, environmental friendly and user friendly. A survey of researches by other researches is an invaluable method for learning about my projectand how I am going to locate and lead the project in its context. This experimental studio practice study is conducted by using ‘jigsaw puzzle’ technique to explore different types of print characteristics which are consistency, textural effects, colour densities and impression qualities. Composition analysis and heavy metal test were conducted for toxicity and eco-friendly concern. The presentation will be delivered as a narrative of critical and creative process that includes the journals and images of specific periods and will make significant links between ideas, forms and contexts and also the creative possibilities that result in the finished research.
