Screen printing is my favorite go to method for altering the surface of cloth and this DVD by Lyric covers everything you need to know about it. She opens with an overview of what a thermofax screen is and how it’s made and then walks through how to create and prepare the image that you want to create a screen with. And those of you who don’t want to make your own screens ,she provides a comprehensive resource list of websites where you can buy ready made screens.
Now that you’ve got your screen you’ll need to know how to use it and that’s what she covers in the 3rd and 4th chapters of the DVD. Starting with an overview of squeegies,paint and printable surfaces,Lyric then very clearly demonstrates exactly how to use your thermofax screens to add imagery to your cloth as well as some great techniques for layering your imagery,using your screens to discharge fabrics and how to use them to add foiling to the surface of the cloth. Also included on the DVD is a 5 page printable PDF file that includes a general screen printing supply list,footnotes for each chapter detailing where to purchase the supplies that she references in the DVD,additional reading and online tutorial resources,and an extensive list of suppliers of custom and ready made screens.
The DVD is well lit and the sound is crisp and clear. If you want to learn how to screen print then you definitely want to order this DVD!
