1  High pressure hose for cleaning out screens! in Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions by jamas on: May 24, 2005 08:30:05 PM
I bought one of these a while back after having a tough time rinsing out screens with the faucet or a showerhead. This pressure washer works great. I just had to buy a faucet adapter which you can find for cheap at Home Depot or that sort of shop. I use the faucet in my bathroom and the hose is long enough for me to reach the tub so I keep the mess in there. I'm in no way affiliated with the company, just thought that some people out there might want one of these. It's $20, but I've found it to be well worth it.

2  same as it ever was.... in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by jamas on: May 24, 2005 08:16:09 PM
My first t-shirt.

It's a reference to the talking heads video for "once in a lifetime" where he makes this hand motion while saying the phrase "same as it ever was". My best friend and I use this as a greeting every now and then so I decided to make it into a stencil.

Here is the stencil:

4  making envelopes in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by jamas on: April 17, 2005 08:07:23 PM
My mom bought this envelope maker a while back and I borrowed it from her a few weeks ago. Basically you can take any kind of paper of a certain size and cut it down and fold it into an evelope. I have a bunch of random sheets of paper around that I use for testing prints so I decided to take a few and make them into envelopes. This is my favorite:

You may recognize some of the images from my past screen prints.

I took a polaroid of the view from my apartment and then turned it into a screen print.

The result:

Thanks to those of you who were curious enough to look it up.
I've decided to post the translation now.

[so dependent on others I cannot make it on my own]

I finished this one yesterday.

The background does not actually have light areas like the scanned image shows.

8  bananas...well, there's more to it than that. in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by jamas on: March 08, 2005 10:19:05 AM

I made this screen print this last weekend. Three different stencils for the three colors. The dots are actually braille, but I won't tell you what it says.

9  "Elevator" - Screen Print in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by jamas on: February 21, 2005 03:23:06 PM
This is my second multi-color screen print.
It was pretty tough to get everything aligned right, but it turned out pretty good. The bottom of the print got cut off by my scanner, but you get the idea.

10  Iron & Wine in Stitch And BOTCH by jamas on: February 19, 2005 02:15:24 PM
I made a screen the other night of Samuel Beam of Iron and Wine, but I had some trouble removing the previous stencil and some of it still shows through. The old stencil is the circles with the numbers that you see. I didn't really count on it turning out right; just experimenting.

"The Endless Numbered Samuel Beam"  [subtitle: botched print #1]

It actually looks kind of neat.
