So I’d read on the internet that you can screenprint with tights and an embroidery hoop… and being that I own lots of tights and lots of embroidery hoops I thought it was worth having a go…
I got my equipment together, I even got an array of different types of brushes so I could apply the PVA more accurately!… anyone who’s done this before will already see my 2 fatal flaws:
I prepared my fabric for printing, weighed it down with Tuna tins (mmm)
One last look at the screen… looks good:
I’m ready to go. So lets try it out on some scrap fabric first… oh… oh… .OH NO…
That’s not right at all…. OH MY GOD ITS GONE RIGHT THROUGH!!!
AND IT’S EVEN WORSE THAN THAT!!! (cough the fabric paint went right through to the dining room table underneath!)
AAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH Grab the cleaning stuff GRAB ANYTHING!! If the Husbot sees this he’ll go SPARE>!!!!! ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHH
(don’t worry.. it all came off…. well… it all came off the dining table… the fabric still has a stain in the middle of it even after I chucked it in the washing machine…. but I can’t really complain about that science the purpose of fabric ink IS to stain fabrics….)
MORAL OF THE STORY KIDS!! use mod-podge or some other super gloopy PVA glue… well… Thats what I’m going to try next anyhow… with me luck!!!
