* I hate Cy5 Silkscreen T-shirt

Posted on August 20th, 2004 by maitreya. Filed under Fun with Lab Supplies, Gocco/L Letterpress.

Cy5 is this fluorescent dye I use in lab. It’s really finicky, thus my line of I hate Cy5 apparel. I used my trusty Gocco and fabric ink to screen a set of shirts for my Cy5-hating friends. I’m very impressed with the Gocco fabric ink. I’ve washed it a few times with no ill effects. It’s gotten such a great response from people that I made a CafePress store to sell t-shirts, mugs, mouse pads, etc. (At cost, I should say. I won’t benefit from the misery Cy5 causes.)

  • This recipe with white beans is probably my favorite farro salad yet. The creamy beans play a huge role in that, along with the sweet tender leeks and fresh parsley. But it's the chunks of salty, citrusy preserved lemon, a condiment often used in Moroccan cooking, that really takes this salad to the next level.
