i would love to learn how to silk screen as stenciling isn't working as well as i would like. i have read numerous tutorials, and the whole thing finally 'clicked' after watching a video.
but i am still confused about what supplies i need. for the moment, i want to make simple designs for personal use on my own clothing/fabric. i was sent a frame in a swap, but i honestly have no idea how to sue it. i also recieved the net, but it is too small for the frame. for a complete beginner, is it best to purchase a kit of some sort? the frame i have is about 12x16, and it is solid two inch or so wood. there is a small slit in the center that goes all the way around the frame. i'm not quite sure what it is for, any ideas on how to work? aside from new net, what should I plan on buying? i have emulsion already.
gah, i apologize for the wording of this. i am horribly tired and cant think very straight i am pretty much just wondering what are the simple basics. i can figure it out from there. thanks for any help!
