I figured an expletive was cause for nsfw, but that aside, I'm super proud of this little guy! He's my own design, and when I decided to print him, I knew that this text was the only option! I know I can't take him everywhere with me, as he's mildly offensive, but I hope you love him as much as I do!




I flooded the screen, and ran the ink twice, but he's still a bit spotty. I figure three of four next time. This was my first attempt, and the ink was much thicker than I anticipated!

very cute. i love the claws for some reason. Smiley

question: did you run a test print on paper first?
I don't print t-shirts very often but I find two or three test prints to be a necessity before moving on to the shirt.

Juuuuust curious... what did you use to screenprint?  I know they came out with that Yudu thing and and I don't a whole lot about screenprinting... just that I would LOVE to do it, hahah.  No job = no Yudu for a long long time though!  I'd love to get any reviews on it.  Cute shirt!

Zoma~  I sure didnt, but I will remember to next time! My guy friend is currently dreaming up his own image, he helped me with this one!
BeckyHearts~ While I've heard of Yudu, I confess I dont really know what it is! I got the itch to try screenprinting, and hit up my (awesome) local art store, bought a screen (and emulsion, and ink, and a squegee) and went to town!

This was such great fun. I'm so glad it wasnt a bust! This was my first real craft post on craftster, and with you affirmation ringing in my ears, I'm wearing this handsome devil out to the arts district tonight!  Grin
