Step 1: Materials
- embroidery hoop (only about $2 for a basic hoop, available at craft stores)
- mesh material (nylon, polyester, silk - something with tiny holes that can serve as a fine screen)
- Drawing Fluid (I use Speedball, available at most art stores)
- small paintbrush
- Screen Filler (I use Speedball, available at most art stores)
- plastic spoon
- screenprinting ink
- shirt or bag to print on
Step 2: Assemble Your Screen
Step 3: Draw Your Design!
*If you would like to be more careful when drawing your design onto the screen, you can draw your design onto paper using a marker first, then tape drawing to underside of screen and trace the design with drawing fluid.
Step 4: Apply Screen Filler
Allow to dry fully for a few hours or overnight (again, impatient folks can bust out the hairdryer). Should be completely dry to touch.
Step 5: Rinse Out Drawing Fluid
Step 6: Test Your Screenprint
Step 7: Screenprint!
