spider t-shirt

I printed this t-shirt as a gift for my husband for our wedding anniversary!

I drew my design onto the screen and painted it with screen drawing fluid then squeegee'd screen filler over the dried drawing fluid.  Left that to dry then washed out the drawing fluid, creating the stencil.

I practised printing it on a scrap piece of fabric, then printed it onto a t-shirt.  I used dark brown pigment and opaque binder, from Quality Colours (I mixed a bit of red, yellow and white pigment in too, to alter the brown colour a bit).  I put a piece of newspaper inside the t-shirt so the ink didn't go through to the back.
