Print silkscreen screen from laser printer?
3 Mesi 1 Settimana fa #1
I would like to find a way to print serigraph (silkscreen) screens with a laser printer. It may sound outrageous, but consider: a) laser printer toner is plastic, 2) laser images are routinely transferred to copper surfaces as an etch resist for making printed circuits or for artwork.
I've read a bit about this and I have three alternatives to consider:
- Print to some sort of paper (e.g. velum or parchment) and use a solvent to transfer the image to the screen.
- Print to some sort of paper (e.g. velum or parchment) and use a clothes iron to transfer the image to the screen
- Print directly on the fabric. This could be done by ironing the fabric onto a piece of "freezer paper" as a substrate and running that through the printer.
Each of these has plusses and minuses. Any comments or, preferably, experiences?
Any help will be apprecited.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
