RE: silkscreen printing

Scratch-Art Co. has a great product called Mask-Ease. It is non-toxic and
adheres to the screen very well. It can be cut very easily with any razor
and accepts small details. My printmaking students are using it to create
infantile designs to take to a home for abused children. They are coming out
really well and with ease.

Subject: silkscreen printing

I have been having problems remembering how I used to silkcreen. Most of my
experience was in photo silkscreen. What I am trying to do is use the
drawing fluid and then the screen filler - but with no success. Also I
remember using a film that we would cut and then put on the screen, but I
can't find anything like that in the catalogs. Do any of you have advice or
know of a good resource?
