Hey Smiley This is my first post in this section, and I so look forward to further delving in this area of craft, I love it!!
I just have to get my act together and set up my own screen and stock up on some inks and all...Aaaanyways, in Craft at school, we could do silk-screening, it was  a choice betweent aht and doing a mosiac. I hate mosaics.
I had seen this design around here before, and came across it on http://threadless.com so was like OMG I HAVE TO HAVE IT! and stole it and cut it out on just normal paper and then screened it on with (most likely) cheap ink that my school had lying around.
It was so damn fun Cheesy
I did manage to mess it up though. It was my first attempt, I thought I did ok. You can see where I did the red...Her head is kind of on top of the gun and not really connected to her body..But you can't tell when i'm wearing and there's nothing I can do about it now.
Tip: Before you put your shirt through the wash...Iron over the design with some greasepaper in between or something..I kind of forgot and it faded SOO much.

I'm utterly obsessed with that image now Grin
Gotta love morbidity
I agree that the head-gun thing is a bit off, but it's very tidy and everything. I think it's brilliant. Smiley

Thanks Cheesy I was wondering if anyone had any tips of how to actually line everything up properly when you use two different colours and two different stencils...I tried looking, like..underneath teh screen before putting it on the shirt, and i thought it was gonna be alright..Obviously not?!!! How do you guys do it?

i havent had much experience with silk screening, but when i do double-layered stencils, i make them on the same-sized paper, and make them line up on the paper. then, when i do the first one, i lightly mark off where the corners are so then i can line up my next stencil to that.

I know you posted this a couple of months ago, but I wanted to respond to your registration issue.  Just tape down some clear acetate (or mylar, or other see through and reasonably rigid material) down one side, do your first print on it, flip it up (make sure your taped side is secure and stationary), put down your shirt, flip the acetate back down and adjust your shirt to lie where you want the print.  Repeat for each color.  Perfecto!  I love the shirt by the way.
