1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Mesh Count Formula? on: February 21, 2007 12:06:44 PM
Is there some type of mesh count formula that relates to the resolution of your image? I am printing on 100% cotton t-shirts (with plastisol) so I know what the overall range I should be using but how can I know exactly what it should be?

proclaim emulsion
14 Scoop Coaster?

1 Roll Blackout tape
1 Screen Brush
Not the Victory Factory Mesh Counter
1 EP33 Screen Reclaimer 100g - Only incase I make a mistake.

1 qt. ink wash
No on the ink mix chart
No on the ink scoops
No on the hinge clamps for screens

In true addictive personality form I will go way overboard in purchasing what I need to start screen printing t-shirts. I saw the Victory Factory kit and it looks complete but I am not sure if I really need everything. I could use some input PUHLEASE! This is what the kit contains and it costs over 300-bones.

Here is the offending picture. It's not so much that I care what others think as much as I think I have possibly become a smug married. The other day I caught myself trying to convert a singleton to marriage-dom. I wasn't sure if I was too far gone or what.

Thx Guys.

Is it a smug married move to put up a picture of yourself from your wedding prominently displayed in your living room? I have 2 5x7 pics up on my living room wall (matted in a nice frame). 1 is of me and dh right after we were pronounced married and they other is of me standing alone. My family (including my husband) are totally ragging on me for putting up a picture of myself.

I'm latin...latin's put up 20x40 self portraits with the fuzzy haze glowing in the background as the subject stares into the sublime abyss (looking virginal I might add). I think my choice of photos & placement is not a cheesy move.

Any opinions?
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Knitters Wanted in Fairl Isle, Scotland on: March 11, 2006 04:47:14 AM
Yeah, I am having a bad day at work and leaving to a remote island to knit my life away sounds nice. Although I think it would be knitting for profit vs. pleasure maybe a bummer in the end.

I just came across this on NPR. Might be on interest for those wanting to get away.

All Things Considered -
The National Trust of Scotland is seeking tenants for two properties on Fair Isle, the most remote inhabited island of Scotland. Anne Sinclair, a resident and historian of Fair Isle (pop: 65), says someone with knitting or construction skills would have no trouble making a living there. The knitting cooperative, for example, has more orders than it can fill.
