Awesome tutorial. I'd been trying to do it the 'xacto out the image and spraypaint it way.'

I haven't run into the problem of the ink running at all. It's pretty thick stuff, more goopy like pudding than runny like pen ink. I press down the screen and brush enough ink firmly in until the screen is saturated and then I push down more, like stippling, with the brush.

Re: this is the easiest way i've ever seen,
I have t-shirts that I've been wearing since about the creation of this tutorial (so let's say 8 months) approximately once a week (give or take). So that makes about 25 washings and they haven't faded at all. That's using the Speedball brand ink, so I can't tell you if using an acrylic paint with textile medium will last as well.

Awesome! I just got an e-mail from the owner of www.familyresource.com and it's going to be up on their site tonight too. Thanks for the link!

Brilliant.
Is there anything that functions similiar to an embroidery hoop, but that's somewhat larger? I've been thinking about doing stencils, but I've been a bit intimidated because I know it takes a LOT of time and practice.

Re: Brilliant.
You can get really big embroidery hoops. I've never bought a large one myself, but I know they're out there, probably near two feet in diameter. Otherwise I don't really know of anything that is as easy to use, sorry.

This is so awesome; I found this from http://drawn.ca/

One question though -- does the shirt wash well? Like a regular screen printed shirt? I want to try this, but it would be my first screenprinting project. :D

I've only used screen printing ink with this method, and yes, they wash extremely well. Mine still look really good (from back when I made this tutorial in Fall).

Your tutorial is just plain awesome, m'dear, and I have but one question: if I'm only going to be using the nylons once, should I bother with getting non-water-soluable glue?

If you only want one print out of the "stencil", then yeah, regular old Elmer's will work just fine. Shelling out the $8 for a jar of Modge Podge is worth it if you want more than one though.

I like to buy them from Wal-Mart -- I can fit a boys' 6-8 tshirt, and i'm 18 years old, 5' 8", 140 lbs. These shirts are $3 apiece, made to withstand little kids, and are super soft. I highly reccomend little boys' Hanes tshirts. :-)

Well, I actually meant to make this a comment to someone else's post, but this works, too :-)
