my first silk screenings, been wanting to do this for year, did these in texiles class, palnning on doing many more, this is the type of silkscreening that uses paper stencils though, not quite as cool but still great, getting good with an exacto blade

Wow...it's your first time and you did multi-colour! impressive. Did you have to let each colour dry before doing the next?

ya, used a hair dryer to speed up the process, the multi-color is actually pretty easy, takes a bit longer but I don't really see why pple say its so hard, I've done several of this shirt now and though they don't all turn out perfect i havn't had any complete failures

Those look perfect. Your must be a master of the exacto blade!  Grin I dont know if you have been able to reuse your screens or not, but since you are wanting to mass produce these, check out this tutorial.


I did some paper stencils for awhile, but now I am addicted to this way. It seems a lot easier to me.

Good luck

I've been using freezer paper, that way i can stick it to the shirt with an iron, i get around 3 shirts from 1 stencil and can cut 2 at a time, , i'll have to try the glue screen thing, it should make a good substitute for actual proper silk screening until i can afford to get all the stuff, thanx for the link to the tutorial
