DIY Screenprint Art Chelsea Costa

Materials Needed:

  • large blank canvas (this one is 48"x36")
  • latex or craft paint in two bold colors
  • 10" embroidery hoop
  • organza or other sheer fabric
  • foam paintbrush
  • Mod Podge
  • small craft paintbrush

Add Base Color to Canvas

Cover the canvas with the base color of your choice. This may take two coats for an even look. Let dry completely before proceeding with screenprint.

Print, Cut and Trace the Design

Stretch organza across embroidery hoop and secure with the inner ring. Print out this free camera pattern download (or choose another pattern) and set the embroidery hoop and fabric over it, tracing around the black parts of the camera with a black permanent marker.

Make a Screen

Begin to create a screen for printing by painting a thick layer of Mod Podge over all of the areas you don’t want paint to appear. Use the small paintbrush to carefully cover all of the negative space. Let dry thoroughly, and add one to two more coats until the coverage is thick enough to block paint from seeping through. Trim the outer edges of the fabric from around the embroidery hoop.
