Love them all!  Great detail.  What type of material did you use to make the "screen"?

i used really fine, sheer woven fabric. similar to sari fabric (east indian dresses are made from it). you can also buy real screenprinting screen, but it's not cheap.

thanks for all the kind words folks!  Grin

i have to say, i'm hooked on this cheapo easy-peasy method. i end up trying out all sorts of designs because there isn't a lot of money or time investment.

please post any finished products!

 Grin ??I really love this method and I cant wait to try it. Im always on a budget and regular silk screening looks soooo expensive. so here is my question:

How do you get such crisp detail with the modpodge? Im just nervouse that my screens would look like blobs.  Huh

cats_pajamas, the ticket is REALLY fine weave fabric; a good quality little, firm-bristled paintbrush; some patience. i always do at least 2 coats of modge podge too.
