Tomorrow is “Art Camp” at the Ohio River Valley Artist Guild. I volunteered to do a screen printing activity with the kids.
To get the screen ready, I paint the design with a drawing fluid.
Once dry, I pour a blocking fluid across the top of the screen.
And use a card to squeegee the blocking fluid across the design.
The drawing fluid repels the blocking fluid (like oil and water)
After the block fluid dries, I wash the drawing fluid out with cold water
The stencil is complete and ready to print.
Everyone will create their own design with stencils: which will be placed on the easel part of the design, then printed on their T-Shirt.
In theory, it should be fun…wish me luck!
