Screen Printing
Thanks for posting this entry about screen printing, I came across this page while I was searching "screen printing" on the internet! Your directions are great thanks!

just stopping by to say thanks for the awesome tutorial :) I'm in the midst of creating my first DIY screenprinted shirt for my music webzine (SHOUT!), and I'm super impressed with the results. Someone has my camera out of state for a few days, but I'll try to come back and post pix when I get a chance.

Just wanted to let everyone know that I'm using Lumiere by Jacquard fabric paint, and I still got a nice, crisp line, even though the consistency isn't quite as thick as the Speedball stuff has been described here (I used the Mod Podge Matte glue). Only time will tell h ow well it holds up in the wash, but as far as the actual production, it seems to be fine.

This is really helpful! I've been wanting to try silk screening for a while now. The FAQ answered the questions I had.

Would this work with paper?
We're trying to figure out a way to print the bags we use at shows.

Re: Would this work with paper?
You could probably use regular ol' paint and print onto bags just fine. I've never done it though.

I tried it last night without much luck, but I am trying again now, only actually being careful this time and you know, waiting for the glue to dry. I bought tulle that was too small so I had to use stockings from like, 3rd grade and those had that seam down the middle. Anyhow I got an old pair from my mom that are working rather nicely so far.

I'm hoping you get this e-mail soon since I'm about to do it, but I am going to print onto a ribbed tank. Should I stretch it out first?
Mar. 10th, 2007 02:03 am (UTC)
Nope, that would probably result in a distorted image. If it stretches a ton to fit you, try to get it to that point where it's almost as stretched as it is when you wear it, I think, but don't stretch it every where to get the ink into every little groove.

THANK YOU. You have no idea how helpful this is! I'm about to run to JoAnns to pick up the materials!

you rule.

You so rock. I almost bought one of those 70$ kits until I found your tutorial. And it worked like a charm.

Although I need a bigger hoop cause all of my design wouldn't fit inside the one I bought...Had to hand paint in thouse bits but you can't tell.

ok so i know you posted this forever and a day ago, but i tried looking through at least the first five comment pages, and havent found what i was looking for.
ok, so i might sound like a newb...but i am, so im ok with that. but how do you put on the ink? do you paint it on? or use a roller or what? im sorry if this is a dumb question.

regarding the screenprinting
hi, regarding your tutorial, i just wanted to ask whether you can use something else than glue. can you take the glue off once you've finished and all? i mean, do i use the screen only once and that's it?
its coz i'm using the school's equipment for my t-shirt design (my major design project) and i cant just put glue on the screen and make it unusable for other people, because the school only has three screens.
so my question is this-
can i take the glue off after i do a design and use the same screen again?
please reply, my email is

Well, seeing as the glue can't be water-soluble, it might be difficult. But nylons and an embroidery hoop don't cost much.

I apologize if you've already answered this, but I only got through page 6 of comments before I felt like my eyes were going to bleed...

Have you tried this method for printing on paper or anything other than t-shirts? I'm curious!
Mar. 31st, 2007 08:23 pm (UTC)
i like this method!
This method is great... but putting the glue makes a big problem with detailed images. so i make the "painting" directly with brushes, after drawing the image i want, with a pencil on the shirt...

that's the one i made for my sister...but soon i'll make a great one for me soon, wait;)
