Hi I'm Molly.

I'm a born crafter, long time craftster creeper and now poster!

I've done a lot of silk screening and stenciling on t-shirts, fabric, etc. It recently came to my attention the massive amount of blank latex caps I own (I play water polo and swim). I am dying to stencil/screen/do something with these extra caps. I was wondering if someone could give me any advice or tell me if/how this could even be done. I KNOW caps can be screened, I have team caps galore, but I'm wondering if it requires more than a dyi touch.

Let me know and thanks for your time!

-Molly

Hi, ive been meaning to DIY screen something simlar to swim caps(ipod sleeves and such) but never had time to buy some or cant do it since i dont have time, but i have read an article about things not relating to cotton, polyester and such for silk screening.

like a quick search i found this http://www.unionprocess.com/inks.html at the bottom it said latex or rubber stuff is sometimes coated or something... i read too fast

sorry if that didnt help, but i hope you get your answer!
