How do you do Silk Screening? (Brief Steps)

Here is a brief step by step guide on how  to do silk screen printing for t-shirts! a) First, create a stencil. 1  Stenciling technique is to paint, draw or print a design onto a transparent  overlay, making the areas to be inked not transparent. b) A screen mesh that is coated with a light-sensitive emulsion and dried is exposed to UV  light. c) The areas exposed to light remain intact while the areas that did not  get exposed to light will wash off. This will leave a negative image on the  stencil. d) Affix your stencil on top of your tshirt to block out the areas  that will not receive ink. e) Place the screen printing fabric (mounted  on a wooden frame) on top of the stencil. f) You flood the frame with ink. g)  Then, press the ink through the screen using a squeegee. This removes any  excess ink from the screen allowing only the area that is not blocked by a  stencil to come in contact with the ink. h) Finally, remove everything off the  tshirt carefully. And leave your screen printed tshirt to dry!
