i guess most of the people in this forum use home screenprinting kits? i can't imagine what those are like, honestly i just can't picture it in my head. hmm...

anyway, i have a graphics/printing class, so that's where i made this. we use blue poly emulsion exposed to UV light, pushed into a screen (nylon, i think), dried, then plasterisol ink to print.. which doesn't air dry, so we then have to put it through the conveyor dryer a couple times.

i guess i missed a spot with the tape (we just use tape for blockout around the blue poly, it makes cleanup reaaaally easy) and that's where there's a black spot there. i don't really care though, i'm not crazy about the design (it's from explodingdog.com and modified a little to make it stencil-like) and the shirt is too big for me anyway..

Hmmm...  I did a screen printing class eons ago (15 years+!!)  We did the technique you described with the photosensitive emulsion stuff on the screens and developing the image like photographs but onto the screen.  It made pretty good images but I guess would be difficult or expensive to set up just at home???  It is so long ago I can't remember all the equipment needed apart from the special emulsion and some sort of UV light setup.  I would love to try this technique again.

It's not too tough, but a bit expensive. All you need is:

-a lamp with a 150w clear incadescent bulb
- diazo photo emulsion (about $20 for a quart which will go a long ways)
- a transparency or some other opaque image to lay on top

I made this from a photo my friend took.
