I screened tiny dots with pearl ink
on this gorgeous pink fabric.
yummy !

Poppy Pod Screen

The screen was created from a photo of poppies

Lots of great background pieces,
as well as pieces with a focal point.

Coneflower Screen

Bird Screen

The prints are piling up...

The metallic inks are wonderful on dark, rich fabrics

Our Thermofax Play Day was so successful
and so much fun...
it was difficult to stop printing and end the day.

Most of our screens were created from our photographs.
You can have your screens made HERE

We made plans to play with
Photo Emulsion Screens next time!

These turned out fantastic. I have never heard of this product or these screens. Looks like I need to venture out to the store!

I have added a link to the bottom of this Thermofax blog post with a link to Lynn, the gal who created most of our thermofax screens.

The thermofax is a thermal imaging machine at a cost of $1,000....we decided to have Lynn make our screens for $9 each.
Lynn also has a line of her own screens you can purchase if you don't want to make them from your own custom images.

The Versatex Screen Printing Inks are the very best, with lots of open time for you to work without worry of them drying and clogging up the screens like paint will do.

You only live once, give it a try!
