help
i'm a complete failure at this. my image ends up looking like a giant black splotch. my best guess is that either my screen isn't tight enough or that my image is too detailed. if it's the former, i'm not sure what to do, as i've made the screen as tight as i can, i think. or maybe it's some other problem entirely. any thoughts?

Hmmm....
There are a lot of hot women involved in this thread. I think I need to get back into screen printing cows, stat.

Wow thank you! I think i'm going to try this in summer holidays although i'm having a hard time translating the instruction (I am German)
I have a probably very silly question:
How do I save an image as a monochrome bitmap file???

Thank you thank you thank you... I'm sooo looking forward to it!!!!

if u r interested to know...
"I've never tried acrylic paint mixed with a textile medium"

Silkscreen paint works better than acrylic because:
1) it can create a more even and flat paint surface
2) acrylic stains the silkscreen badly, damaging it hence the silkscreen cannot be reused.

question on paint
I did your method and it rocks. I've gotten so into it that I'd like to try the professional method, but that will wait for another time.

I had a question though...I've been using the speedball ink, but the red looks crap on a black shirt...Does anyone recommend a different type or brand when printing red on black?

I look forward to posting pics another time.

Pixelated
Wow!!! thanks for the awesome tutorial. I couldn't wait to do this...So I got the stuff and spent the weekend doing it. Trust me to choose a hectic design (the end result is my profile pic), but I have just one question to ask. My completed print looks very pixelated. Is it because the material I am using is not sheer enough? I am using curtaining, but I have no clue of how sheer it is supposed to be. Any ideas? And when it comes to drying, after how long should I wait in order to iron it?

Thanks once again...brilliant

This is a stupid idea...
...then don't do it!

My thoughts exactly. People are such judgers. Cool project. I'll probably be taking it for a spin on a little T-shirt project I have in the works.

Thanks/

Im sorry! This question has probably been answered a few times by now but I dont have time to go through the 16 odd pages of comments 8)

What did you use to apply the modge podge? A brush? Popsicle stick? Im just wondering how to get that detail.

And Also what did you use for the ink?

Thanks!

fabric specific???
I just bought some speedball screen printing ink from Amazon.com got everything ready and went to paint it on, when I happened to notice that the jar said "not for use on fabrics to be laundered". did I just spend thirty dollars on the wrong paint? or is there something I need to do to it to make it set?

((it was the only kind I could find on amazon))

spraypaint
ive used spraypaint to do the same, but didnt use a screen... aka stenciling instead of screen printing... it works but isnt as precise (and cutting out the stencil is a bitchhh and it may bleed if you are not careful)
