I didn’t choose Screen Printing. It chose me. I became consumed with an overpowering urge to print T-shirts. I had no previous experience, (Lino Printing in Art, at school was as near as I had come. I had printed a shirt then and it had transformed a rather uninspiring Purple T-shirt into something a little more interesting. It also lasted for years!).
I think it came from playing in several bands and just wanting to promote them. So I had to find out what was involved.
I managed to source some Black Fabric Paint from a Local craft shop. (Only colour they had available). After some research I found that you could print with a paper template and proceeded to test print on some spare shirts that I had bought but never worn.
For my first attempts I used the Fearless Rune from the Mortal Instruments as a subject. (Not the actual shirt).
I had 6 shirts, three grey and three white. I got three out of these that I would wear and three painting\housework shirts.
