When you pair partners up, will you be pairing by skill level? I'm just afraid if my partner is an awesome screen printer, that they will be disappointed if I freezer paper stencil.

I will certainly be taking skill level into consideration when pairing up people. Above all though this swap should be fun and an adventureous foray into new and known printing techniques.  Smiley

I agree! It will be fun to maybe try a new technique with an old one.

Has anyone tried using vinyl on a screen to print? I saw a tutorial somewhere, and I'm pretty sure she took the screen, put a cut vinyl design on one side of the screen, masked off parts of the screen with packing tape, and printed away. It looked like the put the vinyl on the underside of the screen, as in, the side the would be touching the fabric.

It looked like a much simpler method than using the emulsion. Faster, too! The screen drying time is the worst part!

I use clear contact paper for simpler shapes and designs in the same way  Smiley

Sweet! I have a Silhouette and can cut some vinyl shapes, and a Yudu to screen print with (yes, I have many craft toys), so it could be very fun to try this out!

My teacher uses the vinyl method to teach screenprint at school because is much easier with large classes than the emulsion method. It works really well. I do prefer emulsion though because I can make much more detailed prints, but it's more time intensive

I'm not going to lie... screen printing intimidates me. I may still give it a go...

I have something to make for another swap, so I might try the vinyl screenprinting method out in a couple of days. I know what I want to make, I just have to see if I have the right supplies on hand.
