One more question - I'll be trying this out this week and wondered if you had ever done layers with this method before and if you had any suggestions for it?

I've been messing around with this for like the past week or so and have a few things coming along nicely. Thanks so much!! Ever have any problem washing the ink off? I'm using mostly one color(black) and my screen seems tinted black now. Not a huge problem, but I want to print some white soon and am hoping it won't mess it up.

I tried this out to the letter and it came out really crappy - it was a really simple image, but it bled and screwed up the symbol. Everyone else seems to be doing fine, is there anything I might be doing wrong? I used nylons for the screen and a sponge brush to apply the ink, if that helps.

what kind of ink did you use?
As far as I know, two things could have gone wrong.
1. Did you use the right kind of ink? You should be using textile ink. Not the kind of ink you'd write with...or do calligraphy with. Textile ink is pretty thick so that it doesn't run.

2. Your screen might have holes in it. Did you use the Mod Podge? Did you paint the glue on the screen twice? If not, some ink might have seeped through the screen in areas where it shouldn't have.

Great tutorial! I like the way you did it because you don't have to deal with all those toxic chemicals with traditional screen printing.

BTW - most curtain sheers I've bought are a polyester chiffon - I'm going to try using some curtains I was about to toss ^^

Also, I've used acrylic paint with and without the textile medium. When I've used it without the medium, the paint dried stiff, but then softened after I heat set it.

I have been wanting to try something new for awhile now, I am a knitter and I always get restless come summer! I found this tutorial while searching and decided to try it...this is what my first run looks like:

Thank you for such a great tutorial! I will definitely be trying this. I am all for the "cheap" way, especially for my first few times to see if I like it. Thanks so much for taking the time to explain this so clearly!! ~Jen

"Speedball brand Screen Printing Ink and Mod Podge glue are both what I use. I don't like the way fabric paint looks on fabric and I've never tried acrylic paint mixed with a textile medium, though I know people have gotten results to their liking with both." I thought Speedball Ink was a fabric ink. Is this what you were talking about..http://www.jerrysartarama.com/art-supply-stores/online/5024

Will that work well?

Type of glue to use
Hi I am trying to source the mod podge glue you use.
All I can find from uk websites are water based mod podge glues that are safe and can be washed out with soap and water http://www.doart.co.uk/acatalog/Glue1.html
Are these the ones you use. Seems that being washable would miss the point of what I need to use it for.

Thanks for the fantastic tutorial!
