Screen Printing

Drawing on the screen
Drying screen
Dipping my toes into screen printing. I chose a simple image from my sketchbook. I used a brush & screen drawing fluid which now has to dry completely so I can cover the screen with filler. If you do a YouTube search for 'screen drawing fluid' you'll find lots of videos that explain the process. What I drew on the screen with a brush will wash out leaving the screen ready to print. The last time I dabbled with screen printing was in college a long, long time ago. I wish my friend Arounna was here to give me some good pointers, she's a ninja screen printer.

Looks like it will be beautiful, I love screen printing and have recently purchased an A3 screen and squeegee, I was going to use paper masks, but this drawing fluid looks interesting, I will check that out, hope you have fun! :)

ooh this looks exciting! I just learnt to screen print this year at uni but Im really enjoying it. The monoprint method where you paint onto the front of the screen, then transfer the image onto paper/fabric by screen printing with clear binder can be a cool way of testing out images!

I just remembered an excursion when I was at school and we made some screen print with paper. I still have my printed paper of "Nitrato de Chile". Good memories... Thanks for sharing!

The only thing you need to worry about is registration marks if you use more than one color!!

This is very exciting!! I can't wait to see where you go with this!! 8*)

Oh, and I used wooden picture frames to make paper and silkscreen printing... 8*)

Thanks for sharing. I'd love to learn more about printing in Calgary. I wonder if I would be able to find the supplies I need to make something like this close to home.

Thanks for the post, and this was the first time that I heard of screen printing and it looks really cool. And it looks like it could be pretty easy also. But I really like it.

sweet! we have been getting requests to offer this type of printing, but we just don't have the experience or time to do so. Would you be interested in working something out between us? Please let me know!
