The next technique we learned in our screen printing class was photo stencilling.
You can turn almost any image into a photo stencil, but simple black and white images make it easy to produce a good stencil.
After some messing around in my sketchbook, I managed to scribble this on the back of an envelope.
I then traced it digitally and printed it onto tracing paper. You can use tracing paper or acetate as your ‘film positive’ to expose a screen.
Here are the final prints.
