Once the paint is completely dry, peel up the freezer paper by lifting carefully on a corner. Paint the shirt any colors that you like, and let dry. Sponges: Sea sponges, household sponges, and cosmetic sponges give very unique looks to your projects. But while those are the most popular materials, they can also be made from cardstock or paper. However, if you use a good, heavy cardstock and think a little outside the box, you will find more than your share of stencils from your electronic cutting machine. Acetate stencils, although washable, can slip and ink can get underneath them. Brayer or Roller: These help to lay medium over a large area. When screen printing, ink is forced through a fine mesh onto a flat surface. Life to reveal your two layer print! That way you can place each piece of paper in the correct place. Place your screen down and pull the squeegee down the screen, pressing firmly. If the proportion of acrylic paint is too high, the paint will dry in the screen and cause permanent blockages. It can help to spray a little low-tack spray mount down on your surface to hold your printing paper in place and stop it from sticking to the screen. You can do this on the computer, or by drawing.

Dry Stenciling: Stenciling using things like pens, markers, pastels, etc. Once applied to the stencil surface, the stencil will remain in place and not shift. Stencils can be cut using a craft knife, very sharp fine point scissors or a stencil burning tool. Each stencil will be printed in a different colour. Use pieces of scrap paper around an area where you may be spraying to keep the spray from getting into another area. You do not need to add any more ink for this squeegee pull, we are just pushing the ink from the flood through the mesh and onto the paper. Make sure the design is the size that you would like the final product to be, and then print directly onto the freezer paper.

Put your second stencil over the top of your print, lining up the different elements. Hold your squeegee at a 45 degree angle away from you to drag the ink up the screen.
