Yet another hobby: Silkscreening

August 30th, 2009

I was in an art supply store with Sarah and came across some supplies for screen printing so I thought I would give it a go. Turned out that the instructions weren’t so great. As they say, third time is the charm – the first two attempts I had overexposed the screen. The instructions said 1.5 hours with a 150W bulb. Turns out that 20 minutes with a 75W flood light is all that is required. The paint also requires an iron to set, which is a technology I do not believe in. So I used my 1375W hot air gun, which seemed to work fine (I applied for 30 seconds vs. 3-5 minutes with the iron). I went with an homage to Team America.
