1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Re: First try at screenprinting on: September 03, 2010 09:50:11 PM
Cool!  I love that repeated motif -- the different color bows really make it rock.

I haven't done a lot with this technique, but tried it out with some leftover silk habotai -- very cheap and very sheer -- and made a lion t-shirt for the neighbor kid.  It turned out pretty good with just a little bleed from being over-exhuberant with the stencil sponge.  He LOVES it -- which feels good.

I will have to try using a cardboard squeegee. 

So many ideas.... so little time!

Problem solved!  Pays to make sure the screen is the right direction up...

OK.  I found another tutorial and I think I might have solved my problem -- I was trying to apply the screen filler from the inside of the screen and since it was touching the table, that made it all glob there.  I will try applying the screen filler from the other side and see what happens.

Thank goodness for screen cleaner!

I saw a tutorial online (I think it was Printcutsew, but I can't find it again) that showed pouring the screen filler onto the screen and using a squeegee as if the filler were ink -- and the result was a beautiful, filled screen with no streaks or clumps.  It looked so easy!

However, when i tried this, my screen filler was very liquid (Speedball) and it didn't distribute evenly. It streaked and most went all over my table -- squeegeed out through the screen.

I must be missing a step.  Can I thicken the screen filler?  I've been using a sponge-brush to apply the screen filler, but it's not the most elegant technique and I have a lot of touch-ups that need doing later.

Help!

I love both those companies.  Dharma sells only white or black stuff.  T-shirtwholesaler sells name brands in all colors.  Dharma sells tons of toys for fabric crafters such as frames, paints, resists, dyes, etc.  T-shirtwholesaler sells only shirts, hats and bags --things to be screened.
