Screen printing with vinyl

I’ve always wanted to try screen printing with vinyl as I had some old vinyl I wanted to use up. I went through numerous tutorials before finally making my own screen print press. Please excuse the disaster that is the background, Winter couldn’t make up her mind if she wanted to leave or not before clean up could begin :rofl:.

I can’t honestly remember where I got this file from but this Wolf was my first print. Apparently White ink (water based ink) is the most difficult to work with. I have to agree as the intense thickness compared to the black ink later on was starting to get on my nerves lol.

Anyone else play around with water based inks and vinyl screen printing?


This looks great! I had a screen printing class in College and I loved it.


Wow :scream: it’s stunning!

I’d love to try that as I love screen printing :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

If you get the chance give it a try. You don’t need to go nutso like I did lol, just a wooden screen with mesh, some vinyl, some screen printing ink (like Speedball), a squeegee and you’re good to go. If you do give it a try would love to see what you make.

I love the design. I haven’t tried any of my inks yet with the screen printing. I’m still trying to make my screens for it.

I’m thinking that screen printing lasts longer than heat transfer or sublimation?

Would be great to try :hugs:
