I just found this through stumbleupon. 3.5 years later, and this is still the easiest screening tutorial I've ever seen! Thank you!

p.s. excellent choice of image/concept

Although I am a LJ member, I missed this tutorial somehow. I just stumbled onto it via stumbleupon.com, you did a great job on this. Thanks for the effort.

I did this whole process and then the paint dried on the fabric, I tried to wash it off, but it wouldn't come free without some friction, then the glue started coming off. What did I do wrong? I want to use it multiple times, and it doesn't seem like that will work. How do you clean the paint off so it doesn't get clogged up?

You kind of have to get the paint off as soon as you're finished with it. To do that, just run it under the faucet for a while.

It sounds like you'll have to start over with that particular screen.

this is really cool, i've wanted to know how to do this for a while

just wanted to say that i love this
i've used your technique for a while now and i just wanted to say thanks again. i made 20 shirts on the the same screen (and it's still going) a couple weeks ago for my friends band. they turned out really good and my friends love them. not to mention, these shirts really hold up just like any other screen printed shirt.

here's how the band's shirts turned out

thanks again for your ultrafantasticallyhelpful tutorial.

Re: just wanted to say that i love this
Awesome shirts! What kind of material do you use for the screen? I've tried tulle and silk, and neither worked the way I wanted them to.

Great tutorial! I just have one question. ^^ When you traced the image onto the fabric, you did it by hand, outline by outline, right? That could take a while on a detailed image. @_@;

Nevermind, the video just above answered my question. Thanks again for the awesome tutorial! =D You rock!

Thank you
That is the most simple approach to printing clothing I've ever seen. Just what I was looking for.

Hey there,

This is really great! Would you mind if I snagged it for my art blog at http//stacyalexander.blogspot.com? I would give you full credit, of course.

Thanks for the consideration!

ah i'm loving this
recently read this tutoral and i had to try it for myself. I've bought professional screenprinted clothing but it is way out of my budget now. Now i can make my own shirts and i've already attempted my first one

lol this is my first attempt

i work at Michaels so the supplies were even cheaper with my discount and my coupon saving, so SAVE YOUR COUPONS. Joanns has more of a selection and i used these

they work great and are a LOT cheaper then other paint. these are found with all the t-shirts and i was lucky enough to get them on sale for 2 for $5. So i bought a bunch of colors.

food for thought, you hafta be really patient for this. i was tired of waiting for the modge podge to dry and tried using a hair dryer, DONT DO IT. after i painted with them the paint came out really smudgy, and thats why my letters came out fuzzy.

I cant wait to start new shirts

Hi. I came across a link to this on another site and love it. Great tutorial. I have added it to my memories. Thanks very much.

Dark colored shirt
Awesome tutorial! :) Thanks.

Have you done this with a dark shirt? Light ink, dark shirt. I suppose it would work just as well?

Great tip!
What a genius way to make screen printing simple and affordable!!! I've always been too intimidated about the process to do it. Thanks for making it so EASY!!!
best wishes,

of course.
why didn't i think of this???

Apr. 16th, 2008 03:30 am (UTC)
sorry if this has already been asked, but does a shirt have to be 100% cotton?

I have one that's 95cotton and 5 spandex that I was wondering if I could use.
Apr. 16th, 2008 08:31 pm (UTC)
probably could. natural fibres are best but slight mixes should be okay. in fact i've printed on 50-50 cotton-polyester and it has worked. i use acrylic paints though, so i dunno how the fabric paints might work.

dunno if anyone has mentioned this, but is anyone familiar with the photo emulsion technique? i've been using it and the level of detail you can pull off is pretty amazing.

i was wondering would colors work on a black shirt??

and what kind of shirts should i use??

and is there a way to make my picture as big as the shirt??
like would it work if i used a frame and put the silk on it??

and last one is...is this like making stencils for spray paint because if it is i know exactly how to do the picture and outline stuff?

thanks for the tuturoial though..going to try this out over the summer because to busy with school right now
