Screenprinting Technique Wows Crafter

Hey there, folks. You know screenprinting, that really expensive thing that you can have done to put any image on your t-shirt? Well, it turns out that it can be way, waaaaay cheaper than anyone ever said. Thanks to About.com, I’ve learned how to screen print using sheer fabric, Mod Podge, and an embroidery hoop. And here’s the first result:

The rat on this shirt was stolen, unfortunately. It’s one of the trademark designs of Banksy, a graffiti artist in the UK. He frequently shows these lil’ guys wearing bowler hats or holding signs advertising the fall of civilization or sitting next to toxic waste barrels. I figured that a balloon would be a nice change for a Banksy rat.

This design was my first attempt, and while it’s not perfect, it came out so nicely that I’m a little shocked. I hereby declare that I will be screenprinting more shirts, and will be taking custom orders. Anyone who wants one, shoot me an e-mail or leave a message in the comments.
