How to make hand-made screen prints with Kerry Lemon

Step 1

Paint the outlines

Place your design under your mesh, use the System3 Screen Drawing Fluid and paint the outlines of your design. Once the outlines are done, fill up all the areas you would like to protect with the screen drawing fluid, and let the fluid dry for 24 hours.

Step 2

Screen printing

Once dry, use the System3 Removable Screen Block Medium and flood the screen with the squeegee as you would do to create screen prints. Let the System3 Removable Screen Block Medium dry for 24 hours.

Step 3

Wash your screen

Wash your screen in a sink or your bath tab and dry. Your mesh is now ready for print.

Tip: to have long lasting fun with your created design on the mesh, always make sure to remove the acrylic after each usage straight away, so you can re-use your mesh for many prints to come.
