1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Re: technical Q about screen weight???...help please =) on: July 21, 2008 09:49:16 PM
could i get like 150-180 and do both? I just want to buy one screen, to screen the same image on a few things (tees, muslin, totes, posters)
is this even plausible?

Yeah, IMO if the poster paper is thick. As you know, too much ink on thin paper will warp it. Card stock type of poster paper will do fine. IMO.

AWESOME BROTHA! I was just wondering about this the other day, when I ran out of emulsion and out of 25$! You Rock! Thanks!  Smiley

Yea, starter kits are always good, that's how I got started. You don't need much more than what the kit teaches you really.

5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Overlapping colors on t shirts??? on: September 21, 2006 06:42:18 PM
Can I overlap, let say, black over white ink on a shirt?
Or even White over Black ink, or paint, ?
Or Yellow over Red, will that turn into orange ?
thanks for your replies.

i just clean mine with dish soap and water - let them dry - before i coat them with emulsion.


That's what I do too. Dont' worry about it to much. Have fun. You'll love the technical stuff later after you do a couple of silk screens.  Wink

This is exactly how I make my screens. Good job! I do something before I put the screen on though, I put polyurethane on the frame to keep it from warping in humidity. Then after I put the screen on I put a strong glue over the staples to reinforce the stretch.  Wink
