I was in my litho class yesterday talking with a fellow artist about screen printing. He was wondering how I do it at home. Well I am going to show you. I use the down and dirty way, or as I call it “Ghetto Good!”. I don’t have room for a lot of fancy equipment, or the money.
When I am coating screens I do it in the light. QX1 is very forgiving photo emulsion. I stack the screens divided by skateboard wheels or short blocks of wood. Make sure nothing touches the mesh. I have them flipped to coat the back. Just one side will get a run of over 500 shirts.
