Good job
Hi I'm a skateboarder, how could i modify this to use on skateboards?

Re: Good job
Everything stays the same, just use screen printing ink for wood/plastic instead of for fabric!

Thank you SO much for this! I spent hours on craftster trying to find an easy tutorial. Yours was the best!

Sweat shirts
Have you tried screen printing on sweatshirts? I wouldn't think it would be much different, but I just figured I would ask before messing it up! A sweatshirt is a little more expensive than a t-shirt! :D Thanks for the lesson! I've used this method ever since!

You made it very simple. Nice tutorial. Did you try it on other materials (glass/metal/wood etc.)?

Okay, I'm not sure if anyone else has asked this, and I'm not sure if you have an answer, but here we are: I plan on using this technique to screen graphics onto skateboard decks, which are slightly convexed on the underside - is there anything I can do aside from rocking the screen from side to side as I stipple the ink on?

I love this tutorial! :) I tried it out but I didn't have the right sheer fabric so I'm going to try again. It still worked out pretty good though.

After reading other web pages about doing screen printing the "proper" way, I'm so glad for this tutorial showing me a simpler method that I
A:actually understand and
B: don't need to buy a lot of equipment to do!

I've been using paper stencils & fabric paint on t-shirts for a few years now but I really like this method instead, mostly because you don't really need a 'stencil', you just paint the glue where you don't want the ink to go. Now I don't have to worry about cutting out the paper stencil, which inevitably rips at the thinnest points. Plus I see what you mean about the finish of screen printing ink being nicer than fabric paint!

Thanks, Kristy!

curtain sheer?
What exactly is a curtain sheer? it's basically a white curtain that you can almost see through, right?

this was probably already asked before, but I'm too lazy to go through all 14 pages of comments..

my god, so many comments!!!! I love your tutorial too and have linked to it on my new site http://emptypurse.wordpress.com, it's on the "how to" links page xx

actually, your one of the lucky few on the side bar, not the links page!

I've always wondered how the heck people are able to screen-print with nylons and stuff, but now you've told me! Ah, you're amazing. I am going to try this soon. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

what if you want to screenprint a color like black and pink?

even ink?
thanks for the great instructions on how to do this cheaply.

i'm having trouble applying the ink evenly.

what do you use? a brush, roller, sponge etc.?

Re: even ink?
I use a thick brush and stipple it through the screen.

You are brilliant. I salute you!

This is all I needed to finish my plans to take over the world.
