  • Step 1Using the templates provided trace a stencil onto the middle of a piece of litho paper.
  • Step 2Using a scalpel, cut out the stencil shape. Set the inside shape aside and keep the litho sheet stencil. You will now have the silhouette shape for your design, but it will have no details like eyes, nose and mouth. This is the section that will be coloured.
  • Step 3Cut out the details from the litho sheet you put aside like the eyes, nose and mouth. You will need to place these on the screen to block out the ink. This will leave the detail areas white.
  • Step 4Secure the litho paper stencil to the bottom of the screen with masking tape (the shiny side of the stencil should be facing the screen). Tape all of the edges around the outside so there is no screen showing. Don’t tape the inside edges of the stencil.
  • Step 5Place any inside detail pieces of the stencil on the screen and attach with CleverTack.
  • Step 6Prepare your fabric. Remember to insert some newspaper or card inside so that the paint doesn’t seep through.
  • Step 7Place the screen on top of your fabric, positioning the stencil in the centre of your bag.
  • Step 8Spoon a small amount of paint at the top of the screen.
  • Step 9Grab the squeegee and firmly push the ink down the screen. Scrape any excess ink off the squeegee back onto the screen and repeat in a different direction. This technique of screen printing is usually a two or three person job. One person to hold the screen down firmly while the other applies the paint to the fabric.
  • Step 10Once finished, scrape any excess paint back into the container and, starting at one corner, gently peel off the screen.
  • Step 11Pull off the entire stencil and clean the screen and squeegee. Allow to dry completely before making another stencil and new prints.
  • Step 12Cover the design with a piece of greased baking paper and heat set the paint by ironing over the design.
