Thank you so much for this tutorial. I have been looking for a way to make screen print t shirts and this is the simplest and cheapest way I've found and looks like it works really well!

what kind of paint do you use? im looking to do some screen printing shirts for myself although im unsure of the materials. for glue im not sure if i need one that is or isnt water based as i hears one of themwill wash off. and the paint im not sure wha the best kind is that isnt too expensive. and for the paint you dont have to go over it with an iron? i hear a lot of people say you have to do this to make the paint set into the fabric although i am not sure.
thank you for any advice you can give me

I've only used ink made specifically for screen printing on fabric, and that does take a pass with an iron to set in. You do want to use water-based glue because that's the part you draw with and wash out of the screen. The screen blocking fluid is what dries in the mesh to block the areas that you don't want inked. Hope this helps?

Ahh, this is the best. I did some screen printing in high school & loved it, but we had actual equipment and fancy pants screens made with our designs and such. I wasn't sure how I could possibly do it on my own without all that sheeyit, but clearly there is a way!

Thanks!

Glorious! I've been meaning to do this for awhile, having it all laid out in a nice little walkthrough is just all the more encouraging. Thanks for putting this together!
