    dude, you could probably dumpster dive for everything you need cept emulsion and paint. just get some cardboard and shit, and get a screen and some duct tape, and your all set.
    pm me if you wanna get in the Summer of '09 Slaps book.

    That's the dumbest thing I've ever read. O_O

    @Guy above me,
    Buy the shit, trust me, unless you have proper screen print mesh, your homemade screen will fail.

    If you want to start off, start with bought stuff and as you move on do home made shit.

    its easy.
    just buy the emulsion, teh sensitizer

    then just spread the emulsion thinly on both sides, let it dry (do all of this in a dark place)

    then once its dry, get some transparency paper, and draw ur image or print it on there

    then put the transparency paper ontop of the screen, and put it under a light bulb for a certain amount of time(look up thw times online)

    Hey guys,

    I know I'm new to the forum and all that but I've got 5 years experiance doing printmaking, this serigraphy thing isn't that bad to start if your on a budget but it really does come down to if your serious, pay the money and go for the big stuff.

    Making a screen out of framing wood from an art supply store, then stapling silk screen tight on the one side makes the easiest frame I find.
    The problem with a screen like this is ink will leak under the sides if you didnt seal them off. Its not that bad a problem though as long as your image is smaller then the screen.

    Acetate is very helpful for lining layers of a pic up. Mylar also works and if your really desperate, pretty much anything see thru and fairly solid works.

    If you only have one layer to print and want every print after that to be in the same place just tape around the outside corners of your sticker and then print, remove the sticker off and line the new one up within the tape. Simple and no messing around with acetate.

    I can go into more detail on things if you want me to, I also will try to get pics of my tags up in here as soon as I can actually get a camera :S

    The other were full of bullshit talking. The first page has all the info you need, keep it that way. Fill this thread up with flicks, if you love wheatpaste so much, you should show us your pastes, not just your info. Any pointless talking will be deleted, if you have something you would like to share, we'll put it on the first page.
