Silk Screening Tutorial with Fibra Artysta

Check out this screen print that I made. So cool, don't you think?

fibra artysta I did it first by having Lynn Krawczyk from Fibra Artysta create some custom thermofax screens for me. She sells a bunch of cool screens but you can also send a logo or image to her that she can turn into a screen for you in assorted sizes.

thermofax The paint she recommends for silk screening are Simply Screen Paints by Plaid. They work beautifully.

You just lay the screen on top of your selcted fabric or paper, squeeze the paint on top ...

... and then use a foam brush to rub the paint over the entire screen. Easy peasy.

Lift the screen ... and there you have your silk screen.

Here's another one with black paint.

You let the paint dry for 24 hours and then heat-set it with an iron. That's it!

So you know what's coming next, right? I'll let these beauties dry and then off we'll go to the machine for some free motion stitching. Stay tuned.

Check out Lynn's etsy site here to find cool screens or order a custom one. Check out Lynn's YouTube channel here where you can see her do in-depth demos on her process. Thanks, Lynn.

Happy silk screening. :)
