I inserted a piece of cardboard into the shirt, to prevent screen printing ink from seeping to the back. Using blue painters tape, I attached the stencil to a plastic frame.
Then adjusted the stencil on top of the shirt.
Using a wooden stick, I loaded a 4 inch squeegee with black Speedball screen printing ink.
In a downwards motion, I silk screened the EZScreen stencil with the ink, making sure I covered the entire design.
After lifting up a corner or two to make sure the ink went all the way through, I lifted the stencil off and submerged it immediately in water. (You can remove the frame before soaking in water or after).
And Wallah! A finished t-shirt! Allow the Speedball ink to air dry for at least an hour before handling the t-shirt.
