I have a certain fondness for flamingos- the city I work in was, until recently, the place where all of the pink plastic lawn flamingos were manufactured. They don't call it Plastics City for nothing... Smiley

lol..lucky you..I have two in my garden...but would happily accommodate a flock...

And yet, somehow, I don't own one... I almost bought one a couple of years back when the factory that made them closed, but didn't have the extra cash for something so frivolous. Now, I'm kicking myself... At least I have flamingo socks!

And, that flamingo fabric came out great! And, I agree, the background fabric was the perfect choice. I hadn't considered printing onto a printed fabric, so that gives me new things to think about...

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.

wow that flamingo fabric came out so professional looking, the background goes great with it too, nice choice!

@sheepBlue - don't know if you already got your emulsion yet but i'm pretty sure they make stuff to remove the emulsion so you can reuse the screen, you might wanna pick up a bottle of that too so you don't go through too many screens in the test process. also, the last time i was switching to real screens and emulsion, i was looking around online and i remember seeing a few videos online about how long you need to expose it with a regular bulb and a bunch of tips on how to get a crisper image and stuff, i don't think i saved any of the links (this was before i became a pinterest addict) but i'm sure you can find some help with that stuff if you do a little searching. please let us know how it works out for you, i'm loving hearing everyone's experiences with different methods

When I expose screens with the exposure unit I tend to do 1-2 minutes for fine lines and up to 3 for blocky images.  If you go for too long wiyh fine lines the light will bend around your stencil and blur the lines. Not entirely sure how it would work with a regular lamp but the principle is the same.

And that flamingo fabric is beautiful.  Grin me want some!!

I would have bought a ton if I could, as it is the two I have are cheap ones that my exBF got his brother to ship from the US...they arrived AFTER we broke up..we had a very awkward meeting where i was giving him back his stuff and he gave me the flamingos and a lot of hostility...still I got the birds..lol...

printing on already printed fabric, seems to work really well, I found (from printing on paper) that -counter intuitively- printing on fabric that is close to the same colour worked really well, I printed some onto pink gingham paper and it was great. And solves the problem of what to do with the background, to avoid it looking too blank..

thanks guys for all the nice words on the fabric..I am so inspired..and Partners today!!!

I love personal swaps, for supplies, surprises, flamingo themed things and general silliness.

Would love some hand knitted socks for my big foot boyfriend.

I really love the black hearts overprinted on the red ones. One of my themes was anatomy. Maybe we'll get partnered!
