DIY simple silkscreen tutorial
So, really simple. All you need is:
- The item of clothing you want to print on – try to avoid very stretchy materials. Silkscreen paint is ok, but fabric paint will crack easily.
- The correct silkscreen/fabric paint (there are some that are specific to dark-coloured materials). Also, light-coloured fabric paint on dark materials require at least 4-5 layers. Dark colours on light materials will work fine with just one pass.
- A stencil – you can cut this out of paper and use double-sided tape to mount it on your fabric. Make sure the stencil is taped down securely.
- Other tools that would be useful – a scapel, a cutting board, masking tape, double-sided tape, a paintbrush/sponge and newspaper.
Anyways, hope the rest of it is pretty self-explanatory, cos I’m too fucken lazy to type out something proper. Enjoy!
