This image set contains 4 flower designs that are meant to be cut apart and taped individually for use. Flowers are approximately 3 x 3 inches in size. Top: daisy and lily; bottom: pink and sunflower. Each may be purchased individually but the collection saves $. The screens include additional space around the image for taping.

This screen can be used on fabric, paper, or other mixed media surfaces. Use with screen printing inks, textile paints or thickened dyes. If using on paper: fabric and paper absorb paint in different ways as do different types of paper. When using paper you will need to try different amounts and brands of paint with different viscosity to be sure you are getting the coverage you wish. You may need to use a different type of paint on paper than you would use on fabric to get the results you desire. The texture of the paper may also affect the results.

When you receive the screen, it will need to be duct taped on the edges before use. You can find a tutorial on taping on my blog at http://threadfiberfabricpaint.blogspot.com/2012/12/tutorial-screen-taping.html.

Care of screens: When finished printing with a screen, immediately drop it in a pan of lukewarm water (kitty litter pans are perfect!) so the paint does not dry on the screen. Metallic paints will quickly clog a screen, so not letting the paint dry is especially important. I like to wash the screens right away (plain water is all that's needed); an old toothbrush or finger nail brush helps with cleanup. Dry them with an old towel and set aside with the plastic-coated side up to dry completely. Damp screens stacked on top of each other may stick together. Store flat (scrapbook paper storage boxes work great).

Shipping: Orders will be shipped on Saturday if received by Thursday of that week. Shipping for all orders will be in a flat rate priority envelope. Multiple screens will ship for 1 price using a flat rate priority envelope.
