Ah! yes. You are my hero!!!

I have been searching for a way to screenprint without ridiculous chemicals and a darkroom! (Like I did in school)

THANK YOU SO MUCH! I cannot wait to try it.

What kind of fabric did you use? "Sheer curtain material" isn't very specific.

here's an idea
Here's an idea. Print the picture that you want on paper with a sticky backside such as Full Sheet Lable paper from Avery. Then use the exacto knife to carefully cut it out. Peel it and put it on the sheer curtain. Then you can apply the glue and know that you will have a clean line. Then peel off the sticky paper and walla your screen. What do you think? I'm going to try it.

Any hints or quick tutorials from anyone on acrylic paintings on shirts (ironing, what? best cloth [thick?], heat levels, etc.)

Speed Ball Ink?
The only Speedball ink I can find at Hobby Lobby is acrylic screenprinting ink. It says that it is not meant for fabrics that will be laundered. It seems to me that the paint I am finding is for wood, cardboard and other mediums like those. Is this the kind of ink you use? Does it hold up for washing?

white ink
How well would an image come out if I use white ink on a clored shirt?

EX: white lettering on a not-too-dark green t-shirt.

hey, i'm sure you've probably answered this but couldnt see the answer in any of the comments so thought i would give you a poke! (sorry if this is the 20th time you've been asked this!)

i really want to start screen printing my designs and have inquired into various places who all say to screen print you need very expensive equipment which sets the paint afterwards at very high temperatures. like there's a set on ebay claiming to be the cheapest around and that doesnt even have one of the heat things you need and its £300!!! so whats the score with speedball paint? is it meant to be set, but doesnt need to be, or is it just like normal fabric paint where you iron and thats the only effort you need?

many thanks!!!

WHAT ARE NYLONS? HOW do I screen print with NYLONS?
Hey! I just want to try that screen printing following your tutorial instructions. But I have neither tulle nor sheer curtain material. So I was wondering if I can use nylons. I just read on a dictionary (I'm not a native English speaker) that nylons are those things that girls put on their legs (panties or tights, I think they are called as well) in order to wear a skirt when it's not summer. It would be really cool to be able to screen print using my tights!! In that case, how do I place "the nylons" in the embroidery hoop?? Is that possible? or are the nylons too small for the broadness of the hoop? Do I have to cut the nylons so they become broader (and then maybe, they become totally destroyed, with no fabric left in the end - stockings just "disapear when a small hole is produced!-)? Are most kind of stockings made of nylon, or how do I recognise those that are made of nylon? (I have several old-holed-stockings at home, and I have no idea what material they are made of; but most of them are really thick and opaque) THANKS! I intend to try that this weekend, so if someone can help it would be really appreciated.

Two colors
Do you know a good method that allows you to use two colors?
