You will never know how happy you made some of the production team for this lesson by your comment:
so thank you for being diligent and not hiding the hard stuff
We know this is not the most entertaining of all the lessons, but we think that knowing how to prep and maintain a screen properly is critical to the success of people who are screen printing on their own, whether with enamels or Bullseye glass powders. Thanks for your comments--and we would love to see some photos of your work if you end up making any screen prints on glass.
If prepping and maintaining your own screens becomes too daunting, I have heard that some people are taking their screens to screen printing services to have the images applied and replaced.
And if you are near a Bullseye Glass Resource Center (Portland, OR; Bay Area; Santa Fe; New York), we now offer screen prep, care and rentals as part of our Printmaker Open Studio program. Please see the details regarding eligibility and services for each particular location.
