Hi I wanted to know if anyone can tell me the three non-photographic silk screening methods?  If you could briefly tell me how to do each one I'd appreciate it.  Also Ill be building my own screen is it necessary to abrade and degrease the film?  If so how do I go about doing that?  Thank You

If you're an ok painter, you can use the screen filler/ drawing solution method. This is a more intuitive way to print because it's a lot like painting.
I roughly draw my design directly onto the screen with a pencil.
Then, I paint on it with drawing fluid and let it dry.
After that, I coat my screen with screen filler and let that dry.
Then, I rinse out my drawing fluid.
*Beware, drawing fluid has the consistency of grape jelly.

Or, you can draw your design onto the screen and paint around it with screen filler, creating a negative.

Or you can tape a paper stencil onto a screen.

UTSE!
