3511  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Using a paper 'stencil' in a silkscreen-old school! on: April 17, 2008 08:47:19 AM
I have read interesting tutes here about using photo emulsion, but when I did screen printing (a million years ago) we cut out the image using thin paper. flooded the screen and then laid it on the paper, the paper bonded to the screen and you could print as many images as you liked, but only in one run (so to speak) as the paper mask couldnt be saved,

I tried this the other day and it made an awful mess, the paper just wouldnt stick to the screen, lots of black ink....everywhere!

Any idea what I am doing wrong.

I used a home made screen with a fine mesh, not 'real' silk screen farbic
I flooded the screen with ink first (should I have done this with the paper in place)
I started with a dry screen (should it have been wet?)

most of the tutes I am finding online and here are using a photographic process which I hope I'll eventually get too, but I am more interested now in small runs of prints, so paper would be fine (if I could get it to work!!)

BTW I am printing with proper inks onto fabric.
3512  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Re: What is Freezer paper..? on: April 17, 2008 08:39:41 AM
waxed paper has wax on both sides. Which I assume will stick to the iron if you iron on either side. But the good news is that I have just found this instructable, haven't had a chance to try it yet, but it looks like the solution for those of us who can't get freezer paper here.

as this swap closed early, it is ESSENTIAL that you check with your partner and with me, before sending, to make sure that they are still on track, its the best way to avoid flakers! We are crafting one big, one med and one small item. You can craft more but agree with your partner first!

Sent= orange
Sent and received= Green

thank you so much for posting littleclouds. My life is continuing in its insane groove at the moment, (mostly insane in a good way between work and friends) I am so glad to see your pix up.

I adore everything the skull badge is on my bag that is sitting beside me at work at the moment and the peg bag at home flapping on the washing line. Thanks again
