my creative space: plane screen printing

I've been up to quite a bit of creativity this week which means I think I have got my creativity mojo back... hooray!

I have been working on a new screen print design... my little planes which I made a stamp of the other week - here - from this design - here! I really loved how the stamped design turned out on that t-shirt, so I decided to make a screen print of that design!

I cut out the stencils - I've cut out two stencils because I also planning to do multiple colour planes at a later stage.

I decided to do white planes on a blue t-shirt as a practice one! I used Supercoat White by Permaset fabric paint which is used when if you want to print on dark fabrics (it's more opaque). I haven't really used the supercoat much, as it has been tricky beast for me to concur! But I think I have finally cracked it... woo hoo :) I did stuff up the top plane a little bit (not that you can really notice) but luckily it is a practice one and I know what I did wrong!

so he made a silly face :)

Anyway, I am so pleased with how the t-shirt turned out.. it looks so cute! I will be doing a few more of these I think! :)

    I was actually thinking the other day that a kite fabric would look amazing but never thought to print it myself.

  13. It looks great! I think little boy blue will be asking to be paid modelling fees shortly - perhaps 2 Oreos per hour would be a good starting point :)

    Tammi - they are actually paper planes :) I suppose they do look a bit like kites which is funny because I'm thinking of doing a kite design like this :)
