Hi and welcome. Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog
Some Screen Printing
Every year my mother and I put together a little hamper of everyday food for some of the family. This is usually put together in a box and wrapped. But this year I decided to put a little assortment of things together in bags for those who are to get a hamper, rather than a box.
Some of these bags I bought plain and decorated myself by screen printing on them. Some had some glitter glue added on top.
And while I was at it I found a black vest top I’d bought at some point for myself in the bag with the plan bags, so I decorated that up the same way, ready to ware while cooking Christmas lunch.
I’ll have to remember to hand wash it afterwords in case it looses it’s glitter – I won’t mind if it does after Christmas, but I don’t want the glitter getting into our washing machine and onto every other bit of clothes Mam and I own LOL.
What I Used
- Canvas Bags
- Black Vest Top (Simply Be)
- Gold, Silver and Bronze Screen Sensation Printing Ink (Some of these colours may not currently be available.)
- Gold Pinflair Glitter Glue
- Screen Sensation Printing Frame Kit
- Screen – Pearl String
- Screen Sensation Fixing Tape
- Iron and Table Top Heatproof Ironing Pad
What I Did
After ironing my items I put them into the frame that had my choice of screen attached.
I dropped splodges of the three different coloured inks all along the top of the screen and some in a random pattern on other areas of the screen as well. The ink was then dragged down the screen to the bottom and lifted off.
I then pulled out the first item and laid it flat to dry while I put the second item into the frame, closed it, and scraped the ink back off the tool onto the top of the screen, before once again pulling it down to the bottom.
I repeated this for the third item.
After each item was dry I ironed them on quite a high setting.
This gives you an idea of the screen pattern I chose and the effect of putting on three different coloured inks.
I then took the glitter glue wand and put dots of gold glitter on the dots that were within the design.
This is how it looked as I started adding the glitter glue before it had a chance to start drying and flatten down.
Again I left them all to dry – overnight this time.
Then it was time to put in some items of groceries and add a tag.
This is the first bag (glitter doesn’t show up very well)
This is the second bag – I took closer photos as well as using flash to try and get some of the shine to show.
The panel was put on the centre front of my vest top.
I have several bits of different crafting on the go at the moment, so keep an eye out for them over the next few weeks.
