The tulle works and is ok for some fabric projects.  It doesnt give you the polished
ege you might want on some projects.  The fabric was originally silk and now
a synthetic fiber is used in silk screening.  Also you should be able to purchase
it at a local art supply store.  Or try Dick Blick online.

No ....it wont work....buy some oil base screen inks.
Water and oil do not mix.

Also......only use water base for prints that wont be washed!!!!! You need the oil base
for tee's and stuff.

If you use the touche and glue method......you paint the touche ...where you want the paint to go............then make a kinda soup with elmers glue and spread it all over the screen until it
covers completely......let it dry......Then using turpentine wash out the touche.....now you
have your design and are ready to print.  The glue will not dissolve in turpentine only water.
This is a very inexpensive method.

Merlo,
When I studied Silk Screening at University in the 60's my professor called it
silk screening.  It has been my experience that as long as you know what the
other person is trying to communicate thats good enough.  I lived in a little
peninsula in a foreign land once and didn't understand a word of the local
language.  Makes you appreciate communication from a totally different
perspective......and yes....I still use real silk!!

28  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / Re: dye your own fabric prior to printing? on: January 31, 2005 08:34:35 PM
Yes ... I have dyed many fabrics and painted using procion dyes with thickener
(sodium alginate)  I mix a small amount of color and use test fabric to see if
it is the right shade or color and mix and match until i get it right.  Always
mark the amounts and proportions of each batch so that I can duplicate the
ones that I like.  Ditto on the Dharma Trading Co.  You can go to their
website and order a catalog online or just order online.
Edit:  When testing dont forget to record the time in the dye bath as well.
Rit is not really a dye ...it is a rinse that coats the fiber.  Procion dyes
have a chemical reaction with the fiber and change the color permantely.

Please tell me what is this gocco machine?? It looks really cool, but I have never
heard of it.  What can you do with it that you can't do with old fashoned silk
screening?
