how to do it yourself

STEP 1
SCREEN PRINTED KITCHEN ART - Step 1 | Hobbyideas

The first step under screen printing involves the preparation of the screen which will be used to print onto various fabrics. Select a screen of your required size, Photo Emulsion medium, putty blade, squeegee and a palette knife.

STEP 2

Scoop out sufficient amount of photo emulsion using the palette knife and apply a uniform layer of the emulsion onto the screen with the help of a putty blade.

STEP 3

Select a design of your choice and take a digital print on vinyl sheet/tracing paper.
Place the design over the screen and place it in a dark closed box which has a light fitted inside it.
Turn on the light in the box and leave this for about half an hour. The idea is to properly expose the emulsion and “burn the screen” in those areas where the design is not present. In those areas which are covered with the design, the emulsion does not get exposed and can be washed off, leaving minute pores for the color to seep through.

STEP 4

Take out the screen and wash it to obtain your design.

STEP 5

Place the design onto a surface on which you would want to screen print. Use a Fevicryl soft Acrylic Color of your choice.

STEP 6

With a squeegee, spread the paint all over the screen.

STEP 7

You can obtain the design on your required surface. Allow the design to dry for a couple of minutes. You can start off by doing a trial on paper before moving to your fabric.

STEP 8

To screen print on a canvas, you can make the base coat of the canvas using a color and texture of your choice. I have worked with Fevicryl Soft Acrylic Color: Burnt Sienna to create a random texture on my canvas. Allow the base coat to dry.

STEP 9
SCREEN PRINTED KITCHEN ART - Step 9 | Hobbyideas

Screen print the design onto the canvas using Fevicryl Soft Acrylic color of your choice. I have used Fevicryl Soft Acrylic Color Black. Allow this to Dry.

STEP 10

Use a Fevicryl 3D outliner cone to enhance your design. I have used Fevicryl 3D outliner cone White for this step.

You can also screen print on cloth.

STEP 12

Follow the same procedure to screen print the same design on an apron.

STEP 13

Use Fevicyl Liquid Embroidery cones to enhance the design on fabric. I have used White and Burnt Sienna.

STEP 14

Once done, wash your screen to avoid the clogging of the pores.
