1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Total Noob Questions on: April 21, 2007 01:18:17 AM
i think that if you are considering the masking tape and paint route then you could just use acrylic fabric paint, which is probably going to be cheaper. i don't know for sure, but silk screening plaid onto pants seems a bit labor intensive when you could more easily use the masking tape. Smiley

I dont have too clear what silk screen is but i know the style.
If I paint a t-shirt with a stencil, can i call that silk screen style?  Cheesy
Also...Can i use normal acrylics for paint?

and if i don't use a stencil, just painted with brushes but using the same style, can i call that silk screen?  Grin

Aw... sorry i am pretty new at this!  Embarrassed

well... stencilling is stencilling, silk screening is silk screening (with a screen, photo emulsion, the whole nine yards) and hand painting is hand painting. the three really aren't interchangeable.

i'm interested in silkscreening as well, but i have one concern: how safe is it to rinse out the photo emulsion and then pour it down a sink/in a tub? are the chemicals safe in that way?

thanks in advance.

Haha, yeah, I always associate the o rly owl to fark.com (which is the greatest site evah... well, other than this one that is). 

Heres more info about its origins... not that anyone cares, of course:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O_RLY%3F

Yay internet geeks.  Tongue

those images rock. i love the pig fish. where did you get the images? did you create them? i think they're genius! and they look great for a first time screen print job. very professional.

i liked #3 best! the animal prints made it all very modern and very fierce! i loved the use of fabric patterns in all of them though. i can't wait to see more from you.

what a neat way to use iron on transfer paper! and you're right: much cleaner and neater than stencilling.

awesome awesome!
