my boyfriend and I have started into screen printing, using the very DIY chiffon-in-a-hoop technique.

our first shirt came out like this:

http://home.ripway.com/2004-10/183985/shirt1front.jpg

http://home.ripway.com/2004-10/183985/shirt1back.jpg

the design on the front is taken from a picture of 19th C. German philosopher Ludwig Feuerbach. the words on the back (it reads "theology is anthropology") are taken from his writing.

because it was our first project, there is a little smearing/blurring, but I think we will get better with practice.  screen printing is so much fun.  I want to run around printing little Feuerbach heads on to all kinds of things!

Your shirt is cool. Can you clarify the chiffon-in-a-hoop technique?
Thanks

you can check out here for a tutorial that we followed: http://www.livejournal.com/community/craftgrrl/3674467.html 

basically, you take a thin fabric with little holes (such as chiffon) and pull it taught in an embroidery hoop.  then you paint glue over all the negative space within the hoop.  once you have made that, you go over it with ink, kind of like stenciling.
