1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: 2010 What is everyone planning to make for Christmas? on: August 19, 2010 09:11:29 AM
I don't have everyone planned yet but my nephews (3 -ages 2,5,6) and neice (age 6) are all getting quilted animal blanets. They are going to be HUGE. My sister in law is getting an apron, oven mitts, coasters (she loves to cook) and possible homemade soap and spa things (like hair wrap, bath salts, etc.). My brother is getting pj pants and screenprinted shirts (we have jokes about twilight, yes I am a huge fan and he makes fun of me, so I am screenprinting shirts of the jokes) I haven't decided for the rest of the family yet.

I made my neice a felt purse last year. She was 5 and was getting into the whole wanting to carry a purse phase and I found a really cute felt purse kit from a craft store and thought it was perfect for a 5 year old. I didn't want anything too old for her. She loved it! I filled it with stuffed animals and such.

LSU fabric and accessories are everywhere! Try Hancocks, JoAnns, & Hobby Lobby. There is a LSU store (and several stores that sell LSU stuff) perhaps they have fabric?
4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Re: My image just won't burn.... help please! on: December 03, 2008 10:42:28 PM
I figured out my problem! I am posting it here for anyone else with similar issues. A) I think the emulsion was bad. It dried blue (even though it was in a completely dark room) The new emulsion dried green and then burned blue (which works!) B) the image wasn't dark enough. I printed it out on a transparency and it was black and when I put it up to the light I thought it was dark enough but it wasn't, I printed extra copies and layered them.... and .............. IT WORKS! yay!

SO, I tried the whole process again and still the SAME problem... I can't seem to get the image to burn. I left the light on it MUCH longer this time and then POWER WASHED the emulsion out. I got it as clear as I possibly could but still, the paint won't go through. I am about to try a different screen... any ideas what I need to do differently?

So I am getting into screenprinting and already facing a few issues. I set my screen up, with the photo emulsion dried (yes, in a thin layer and yes, kept in complete darkness) I place the image on it, with glass over it, and set the bulb about 17 inches from the screen. The bulb is a 250w BBA No. 1 Photoflood bulb. My screen is speedball and the emulsion is Diazo. I let the image lay under the light for 20-30 minutes ( I have done it a few times already) and when I remove the transparency I see the image on the screen. I rinse off the photo emulsion and try to paint the image on paper, fabric, ANYTHING and NO PAINT GOES THROUGH! What am I doing wrong? Should I not add the glass (everything I read and watched says glass is better). Should I leave it on longer? Should it be closer? Please help!

I just now heard about the freezer paper method (where have I been?) and I've been seeing this sparkly stuff everywhere... what is it? I would LOVE to make me a shirt for the movie because I too am a HUGE Twilight fan... and I love Edward... Smiley
