52 Week Challenge: #10 DIY Screenprint Dodger Tee

Sunday, April 1

Chris and I are going to a Dodgers vs. Angels game next week for opening day. I don't know much about baseball, I usually just fill up on food, sun, and beer. I just cheer when everyone else does. Chris has his own dodger gear. But I wanted something to wear to support the team.

I've been seeing so many awesome textile diy's around lately: A Beautiful Mess' hand stamped dress, a bleach painting tutorial by Lune via A Beautiful Mess. I thought I'd give this screenprint diy, that I saw over at Manzanita, here's my take on this awesome and totally easy project. Here's what you need:
Shirt (thrifted), modge podge, fabric paint (this was my first time using Martha Stewart's all-purpose acrylic paint and it's amazing!), design, cardboard piece, embroidery hoop, nylon or panty-hose fabric, paintbrush, and permanent pen.
1. Create a design for your screenprint. I started with something simple since it was my first time using this method. Later, I did a more elaborate design for the front of the shirt, after I did this first heart as practice. Make sure that your that your embroidery hoop is large enough for your design.
2. Stretch the nylon over the hoop so that it is taut.
3. Trace your design using a a permanent pen.
4. Using Mod Podge, paint the "negative space", or, the space that you do not want to be painted.
5. Fill in the whole area, making sure there are no holes or gaps. I was obsessive about this because I didn't want the paint to seep through. Let dry completely. It took about 3 hours for this little one to dry.
6. Lay the hoop flat on the shirt and position where you want the design to be, and place a piece of cardboard beneath the area so that the paint doesn't bleed through the back. Squirt a generous amount of paint over the design.
7. Use the cardboard to spread the paint over evenly.
8. Carefully lift the hoop off the shirt and voila!
9. Let the paint dry completely before wearing.

I also did the front part of the shirt. I made the LA symbol inside a heart. I thought it came out cute and I'm excited to wear it to the game! Go Dodgers!

A few people have commented asking me how I made the design on the front. Here's a picture of the screen I made to create it. I painted Mod Podge on the outside of the heart, and the block letters, basically anywhere I didn't want the paint to go. So you kinda have to think in reverse. Hope this helps!

    2. No! Gesso is acrylic primer and will ruin it.

  6. Great idea! How does it wash? I'd worry the paint would peel off the shirt since it's water based.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Be sure to buy FABRIC paint. If you can't find that, acrylic paint and fabric medium mixed together will do the trick (Mixing amounts should be on the bottle). As long as you heat set it after it's completely dry, the paint should hold up much like a decal or screen printed shirt from the store.

      Hope this helps.

  7. you can do this with mod podge?! i may need to start screen printing everything i own...
    I'm also curious like anonymous above me about how this holds up to washing?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Good question! I haven't actually washed it yet, haha. But when I do, I will probably hand wash it. The paint is supposed to be all-purpose, and I've seen it used on fabric before, so I'm hoping that it won't crack or peel off :) I will update my post after I wash it!

      Delete
    2. I've painted a hand full of tshirts and if you use proper paints it washes pretty good. I do iron my designs after the paint is dry tho, using some wax paper or simply a cloth over the design so the iron doesnt ruin the paint. Afterwards just wash on the mashine without problem (dont use high temperatures tho) and dont use the dryer, that would ruin the design and make the paint crack.
      Ty for the tut, i had never thought of using mod podge to create a permanent stencil, its a great idea :)

      Delete
    3. If you use fabric paint you should be OK, I stenciled a shirt for hubby almost two years ago, with only a thiiin layer of fabric paint and after two years of washing and drying normally it still looks pretty much like the day I did it. It's actually faded LESS than most of his regular tees. :)

      Delete
    4. you can use any acrylic paint and mix it with fabric medium (found in paint sections at stores) and it should hold up. my high school art class used this technique

    2. I believe when you use modge podge for the "negative" space, you CAN reuse the "stencil"...just make sure you wash out the paint you previously used. Just in case you want to use a different color. :)

  27. This is really neat! Just another idea for your letters inside the heart. Cut out your design in freezer paper and then iron the freezer paper with glossy paper side onto the shirt with some fabric over the top of paper (between your iron and the paper) and something under the front of your shirt. The paper will stick to the fabric. Then screen print as normal. When everything is dry slowly lift the corners of the freezer paper and tada you have your image!

    1. Thank you for this! I soooo need to get me some freezer paper. There are so many uses. Great idea!

  28. To heat set acrylic paint on fabric: when paint is completely dry, cover design area with pressing cloth (I like using a flour sack dishtowel); heat DRY iron to cotton setting; using press & lift motion, press each area for 20seconds; repeat until entire design has been set. If pressing cloth starts to scorch, reduce iron heat a little. Never slide the iron, and don't worry about overlapping the last spot ironed--you want to make sure you dont miss any!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thank you so much! The directions on the bottle are so vague. I will definitely try this!

      Delete
    2. I found a cool way to make your screen printing designs look sort of vintage-y... When the paint is almost dry but still a bit tacky press the iron over it with no pressing cloth, just straight iron on the tacky paint. It will sizzle a bit, only do it for a second or two. Then lift up your iron and wipe clean and press somewhere else. It gives it a cool, worn in sort of look! I made my kiddos some vintage Mario mushroom shirts and they turned out super cool!

  29. Does the paint come off after you wash it? I'm thinking of doing this on onesies if the paint stays.

    1. I haven't actually washed my shirt because I wore it once to the game. But from what I understand is that with the Martha Stewart All-Purpose paint is permanent. The directions on the bottle are not detailed , but I looked it up and you are suppose to iron it on low to set the design. Hope this helps!

  41. could you do this by just cutting out what you want with cardboard instead of the nylon? or do you think that wouldn't really work?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'm not sure. THe nylon allows you to spread the paint evenly and smoothly. THe cardboard may create a lip. But other readers have commented with other great ideas here, like using contact paper instead of Mod Podge. It just takes some experimenting :)

    2. Washing it worked just fine- I was super careful though and really only worried about getting the paint out of the nylon and not off of the ModPodge. I wonder if Outdoor ModPodge would be better if you intend to wash and reuse it a lot?

      At any rate, reusing it later worked BEAUTIFULLY.

  45. I love your tutorial! Looks fairly easy too, I will for sure give it a try. :))

    As to washing - I have used all purpose acrylic paint to make my own tags, basically by stamping small pieces of white fabric with regular stamps and acrylic paint, then pressing the print with iron to "set" the paint, (I used parchment paper on top of the print, so the paint wouldn't stick to the iron, but I've read that it's not even necessary). I have washed the garment twice already, in hot water, using laundry detergent & fabric softner and drying it on the hottest setting, and the print still looks perfect as it did the day I made it. So I'm guessing that your project will survive the washing just as well. It might depend on the type of paint we use, but as far as I have played around, it works! :)

  48. Would this work with freezer paper?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I used freezer paper yesterday, and it worked wonderfully! I just used a foam brush and "dabbed" the paint into the space on the shirt, then I smoothed it over with the brush. You definitely want a piece of cardboard or something between the layers of the shirt because the fabric paint tends to bleed through a little bit.

  55. I have a silkscreen that I bought several years ago and use quite often. I cut my stencils with that out of contact paper (I think that's what it's called...) I can draw and cut out my design from it easily, and it sticks right to the screen. Then, after I'm done printing, it just peels off my screen and I can wash it an reuse it many, many times. This would probably work with this design as well. Just remember if you want lettering to cut it out backwards.

  62. I actually work at a screen printer and this is really really cool. Just some tips about caring for your shirt...we usually suggest that you wash it inside out on cold and either hang to dry or use low heat in the dryer...but turning it inside out really helps to save the ink. Thanks for this tutorial...I've wanted to get shirts done, but it's super expensive just for 1-5. Also, like someone else said, you should be able to use the same nylon for another print while the paint is still wet.

  93. I have been researching various fabric painting methods the last few weeks. I tried my hand the first time the other night with stenciling on a shirt. I started very easy with a soccer ball. Turned out great. I am now ready to add to that shirt with a 2nd color & glitter & will also add rhinestones once all is dry.

    I have been fascinated by the screen printing technique, though, but the supplies to do it are outrageously priced! So, this tutorial is FANTASTIC!!! I think I could handle modge podgeing a screen much quicker & more precise than an exacto knife to cardstock or freezer paper for a stencil. ~Kim

  96. I really like these long sleeve cotton shirts from Soffe, they are versatile and easily worn in many situations. Sometimes I wear these as layering with an outer short sleeve shirt, or I can wear these with some sweats when I'm at home just relaxing or even for light workouts.

    One note I would like to make..if you like your shirts worn with a little breathing room, I recommend you buy one size up. I normally wear Large, but my instincts told me to go with X-large. When the shirts arrived, the X-large felt roomy and cormfortble(which meant a large would've been slightly snug).

    The navy color I got looks good. The material is neither too thick nor too thin, just right for these type of shirts. It's also 100% cotton, which is what I prefer. Lastly, these shirts are priced reasonbly(under eight bucks each).

  97. Ironing AFTER it dries would probably help seal in the design. In my college screen printing class the teacher told us never to use fabric softener when washing screen printed clothes as it causes the design to crack, so keep that in mind as well! Very cool tutorial.

  101. The next thing to think about is just how much pressure you would like the gay sizegenetics therapist to use on you. Different practitioners have different styles when they perform an erotic gay sizegenetics. You must communicate with your therapist so make will know exactly what you would like in an erotic gay sizegenetics. You may ask your gay sizegenetics therapist what their style it really is and whether or not they are adapt it in your needs and desires. At any time you contain a pressure level you find very enjoyable, make sure you mention this whenever you book the appointment with your sizegenetics.

  133. For a disposable "one of a kind" design stencil I'd use just simple white Elmer's glue - because the point, I believe, is to cover the net so it does not let paint through, but Elmer's is not waterproof and stencil won't be washed. However, ModPodge seem to be washable after stencil has been used, and is great for multiple prints.

  136. I would love to do this with my preschool art class! Do you think the stencil will work if it's damp? I will have to rinse out the color from the previous student and quickly use it again.

  140. I am about to tell you about custom tshirt screen printing? The constantly changing fashionable take on custom tshirt screen printing demonstrates the depth of the subject. Given that its influence pervades our society, spasmodically it returns to create a new passion amongst those who study its history. Often it is seen as both a help and a hinderence to the easily lead, who form the last great hope for our civilzation. Though I would rather be in bed I will now examine the primary causes of custom tshirt screen printing.
