great way to make a stencil), but since I was printing a dozen or so shirts, I had to find a method that allowed me to produce multiple prints.
Dharma Trading Company, including a DIY screen printing kit.
I chose to do the screen filling method rather than the photo emulsion technique, just for sake of time. But Ashley at Lil Blue Boo has a wonderful tutorial on how to use the photo emulsion technique.
Here's what I used:
Wooden frame screen| Screen filler | fabric inks | squeegee
cardboard | plastic spoon | t-shirts
First I set up the screen. I printed out a robot image (also taken and modified from Lil Blue Boo. It saved me time in creating my own sketch), then lightly traced it onto the screen with a pencil.
I stuffed a piece of cardboard inside the shirt (so the ink wouldn't go through the front and onto the back), then I centered my screen on the t-shirt, and added a dollop of ink along the top of the screen.
