You, my dear, are a goddess.

Doot! Thank you! Now I'm not so clueless. :)

Ok, this might be a dumb question but i know absolutely nothing about screen printing, sooo... is that kinda like stenciling? I mean, I know the ink seeps through the netting, but isn't that the same as using a stencil and paint? I'm not asking this to be a jerk or an idiot, I SWEAR!!! I'm just trying to learn the major differences between stenciling and screen printing.

I guess that would have been a better (and less-stupid?) question, so i want a re-do:
Ok, what are the major differences between screen-printing and stenciling??

It's like stenciling in the way that the parts of the screen without glue are like the parts you cut out of a stencil. The only stenciling I've tried is by cutting out contact paper with an exact-o knife, and with those I'd peel it off the shirt and it'd lose it's "stick" entirely. With the screen you can use it over and over so long as you rinse the ink out every time.

You can use fabric paint with the screen, like stenciling, too, though I had a bad experience when I was setting it once and it bubble up and ruined what I'd been working on. I don't think you could use ink with a stencil though because it would be really hard to apply evenly.

Holy crap WOW! That is an awesome tutorial!!

This is a totally unrelated question, but I love your icon, do you mind if I use it?
Jun. 2nd, 2004 11:44 am (UTC)
You recommended "curtain sheer material/tulle/old nylons"...out of those, do you have a preference? Which one would you say works the best?

BTW, I LOVE your tutorial. I can hardly wait to try it!!!

One More Question...
Do you think that it would work the same if I used thinned-out acrylic paint instead of screenprinting ink?

fanfuckingtastic. thank you. =c D

(PS: this is your best print yet!!)

PPS: does the modge podge transfer to the shirt at all? (when doing the stippling or whatnot with the ink) does it wash right off? seems like it but i just wanted to double check.

this is *awesome*. I actually bought some speedball ink a while ago with this in mind, but I haven't had the guts to go through with a project because I was unsure how to go about it. Your tutorial helped immensely! Thanks, you rock!
May. 11th, 2005 07:06 pm (UTC)
Where did you buy the ink??

dude. i am so sick of making one or two time use stencils out of cut up folders. you rock.
Jun. 2nd, 2004 04:33 pm (UTC)
*scream!* I love your method! So easy and fun! Thanks for being so generous with your ideas and time.
Jun. 2nd, 2004 04:35 pm (UTC)
right on! i've always wanted to try screen printing, but i never understood how everyone did it. thanks for the awesome tutorial!

Well that's pretty impressive I must say. You might also try doing multiple passes if you want to use more than one color.

Did you use a stencil/stick on letters for putting the glue for the wording?

So I guess now we will see a ton of homemade shirts. Lol.
Jun. 2nd, 2004 07:19 pm (UTC)
I printed the word out along with the image and traced it on along with the cow to the material.

I'm really looking forward to seeing all the shirts in this community now, it's such a great way to wear what you really want to wear.

And some day, when I'm brave, I'll try more than one color :o)
Jun. 2nd, 2004 07:17 pm (UTC)
That is simply amazing. Let me just say that first off. Although I have a question.
*how do you save the picture as a monochrome bitmap thingy? do you have to have Word Paint to do it?
Jun. 2nd, 2004 07:32 pm (UTC)
I've only tried it on Word Paint, so I'm not sure how else to do it. I think you can use Microsoft Word too somehow.
