Screen Printing Sampler: 4 Fun & Innovative Ways to Make Artful Cloth
with Jane Dunnewold
Flour paste is easy and inexpensive and creates organic lines—crackles, words, and even drawings. Paper stencils are immediate and perfect for a short printing session or for printing single images. Water-soluble glue withstands several printings; it dissolves as you print, so every image is slightly different from the one printed just before it. Soy wax can be applied with a brush or a stencil—or even a tjanting tool. Once the printing is complete, hot water washes the wax away. Voilà! Your screen is clean and ready for the next print run. Inexpensive and addicting, these screen-printing techniques are a must for the fiber-artist’s surface design toolbox.
