How to Block Print Fabric - Quick DIY Tutorial

video How to Block Print Fabric - Quick DIY Tutorial
With very little investment and almost no technical knowledge or complex apparatus, we will get you started on screen printing. It's a common misconception that one needs a costly setup for screen printing.

We have used an Indian cotton fabric (muslin), which is an organic cotton fabric. We make small paisley patterns in this session. We describe the whole technique of printing and treating the fabric afterwards.

The materials needed for this are:
1. Cotton Fabric
2. Color (dye)
3. Color Binder
4. Color Fixer
5. Screen Pattern
6. Applicator

Except for Screen Pattern, you can get everything else in any Hardware store.
