Don’t tell my husband…

9 May

Comparing window screens on hand to the traditional Japanese Leno gauze for paste resist. Of course, the traditional gauze works flawlessly…

The component is thin and really open at 18 squares across an inch.

The spare aluminum screen worked but left large screen lines. The redeeming factor was the large working area for several commercial stencils to be laid down.

It came in at 18 squares across the inch but the component used to weave the screen is thick and leaves its mark in the paste resist.

My Pella window screen won the commercial screen test.

It came in at about 17 squares per inch with slightly thinner component. One must remember to spray well to soften the paste resists so it settles into place on the textile after you lift the screen.

The final test is the indigo bath…more to report.

    Are the sticks to prevent curling an crackling?
