Paint is re­ferred to as ink for screen print­ing. You can buy it sep­a­rately or in a kit.

STEP 1 Draw de­sign on pa­per and cut out. Tape pa­per sten­cil to back of frame.

STEP 2 Put frame, sten­cil-side down, on fab­ric and spoon ink onto screen at top of de­sign.

STEP 3 Use squeegee to drag ink over the screen.

STEP 4 Lift frame off the de­sign in one smooth mo­tion to avoid smudg­ing the ink.

STEP 5 Dry ink with a hairdryer as you go to pre­vent smudges.
