Hi all!

I've been wanting to do this silk screen for ages, but have been having some disagreements with Speedball drawing fluid and screen block, so I had to find an alternative way of doing it.  I wanted to do more than one, so a paper stencil was out.  I decided to have a go at cutting a stencil out of contact (the sticky plastic book covering stuff) and sticking this onto to screen and see if it would hold for a few editions.  It worked!  I did two different shirts with the stencil and I think it would have held for a few more too.  It's definitely a technique I would use again!

Here's my pic...  this makes me smile every time I see it.  Unfortunately, I have had no high fives from strangers... they all read my shirt and them look away quickly, doing their best to avoid eye contact with me!  Oh well...



Comments and critiques welcome!  Cheers!
