okay this might be a stupid question...

do you think this ould work with acrylic paint mixed with a textile medium instead of actual screen printing ink?

i know this post is reallyyyyy old but your userinfo said you were still active

Yup, acrylic paint mixed with textile medium will work, as far as I know. Other people have done it though, not me.

Thank you sooooo much for this tutorial. I am going to run out this week and get the rest of the stuff I need.

I just wanted to say I've done at least a billion of these, and I've referred a TON of people to this tutorial. This is such a great (cheap!) alternative, and I've had a ton of fun with it.

Awesome work with this. :)

what if it's a techni-colored picture?

You could get creative in Photoshop, I'm sure, and make a few screens to layer with different colored ink. I've never done it though personally.

This is a good tutorial. I wasted my money on the speedball kit that has this cute hibiscus pattern on the front and it doesnt even come with that stencil! What a crock. And the directions for photo immulsion are ridiculous. I am guesssing however that the screen is not reusable and that I would have to purchase more tulle.... But since I make wedding favors and stuff at my work, I'm sensing that it probably won't be to hard for me to find
Jul. 19th, 2006 12:19 pm (UTC)
The screen is re-usable for the image that you created on it; that's the whole point. So no, you can't wash out the glue and reuse the material, but yes you can reuse the screen to make multiple prints of your image.

two-tone printing
I'm really sorry if you've addressed this already, but I don't have time to look through 14 pages of comments.

How would I go about doing a two or three tone printing? For example, if you wanted the cow to have white ink instead of just negative space? Would you have to make two completely separate screens?

Again..awesome tutorial

She already answered that on this page...

Jul. 19th, 2006 09:19 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much for the tutorial! Every other one I've seen is no where near as clear and concise as this! ^__^
Jul. 20th, 2006 04:04 pm (UTC)
I bought...
Modge Podge Matte-Mat and Velveteen Tulip brand Soft Brushable Fabric Paint in Black.
Is that what I should have bought? I'm afraid that the paint I bought isn't the screen printing ink you're talking about...
Jul. 20th, 2006 04:08 pm (UTC)
I mean I know it isn't the same exact thing you're talking about but is it going to do about the same thing?

i don't know if you've written about this or not...but if i were to do a shirt...if i washed it in my laundry machine, would it still look good after? because i've had problems with things such as t-shirt transfer paper disintegrating and what not. are there any special instructions when it comes to laundering these shirts?
Jul. 23rd, 2006 04:20 am (UTC)
If you use screen printing ink it should wash/dry just fine through repeated use just like any shirt you'd buy at a store.

question for help
I tried this and was not as successful as your pictures. I practiced several times before making my final print- and never got to my final print because I was never satisified with the practice prints. I followed the instructions and 1) was not able to get the glue to outline the picture perfectly- or close, there were several rough edges and 2) with painting the paint sometimes ran under the glue and ozzed out. Is there any help? is it easier to make a stencil with wax paper instead?

Re: question for help
Were you using tulle? nylons? curtain sheer? The curtain sheer fabric works best as the "weave" is tighter and you can get more precise results. If your results just weren't that good though, maybe a stencil would be better for you. I was always better at painting than cutting with a knife so I came up with this method.
