How to Silkscreen T-Shirts in Your Bathroom

Ever wanted to silkscreen your own graphic T-shirts at home? Don't. Moca TV shows us what it takes to make a professional looking T-shirt and the process is probably not worth effort. It takes expert squeegee skills, a whole lotta waterproof tape and of course a good design. Just wear your t-shirts plain.


Moca TV explains:

Silkscreening at home starts with a good image. Then a trip to the hardware store or your friendly local arts supplier. Your bathroom is a photo lab and the toilet is an easel. Draw the emulsion down with a squeegee and save the extra for next time. If this is your first time, there will be a next time. It's a process.

My father made a screen printer in the late 70's early 80's. It's extremely messy, time consuming and requires a lot of cleanup. Just don't do it.
