I was referred to this site by someone that saw my screenprinting tutorial on Live Journal. This site is amazing.

If you follow the link below it will take you to a photo (with minimal text on the photo) tutorial on how to Screenprint. You will not need a flash dryer or anything like that.. this is for one color printing but if you are crafty you can do several colors using the same method but it'll be a little tricky....

Please check it out. The way it's set up you can leave comments on each individual photo. So if you have any additional tips or suggestions or variations on what I'm doing PLEASE leave them as a comment. Everyone that looks at the tutorial will see the comments so we all help each other in the end. ENJOY!

Okay, This tutorial was created by Lumpkins, not me. He posted a link to it, but it only worked for a limited time. I saved the tutorial, so I edited my original post complimenting Lumpkins on his fantastic tute, and putting it here. I hope it is useful.

Somehow I lost step 19. I don't know how. But I think it had something to do with putting the photo emulsion on the screen. I'm hoping that won't be too hard to figure out.

Whew. That was the longest post ever! Let me reiterate, I did not make this tute. It was made by Lumpkins, who I hope won't mind that I posted it.

Also, one daddio posted a much simpler tute on page 7. Check it out, especially if this one looks a little overwhelming.

Yes! I thought I was the only one who was left even more clueless after reading the speedball instructions.

My boyfriend and I wanted to start doing some collaborative silkscreening but I didn't know how to explain the process to him. Thanks much for this tut, it breaks it down into such easy to understand steps!
