    Custom Screens

    Free your favorite pet portrait from its frame and ink it onto a plain pillow. We sent this cat photo to a custom screen-making company, which made ready-to-use screens for this project. A hand-drawn tribal pattern was printed onto the pillow by repeatedly inking and rotating a small screen.

    Printed Wall Art

    To complete this three-color print, we used three screens -- one for each color of the design. Download the artwork using the link below, then trace each design onto a separate screen. Draw paint onto areas of each screen where ink should pass through the screen, and apply screen filler to all areas where the ink should not pass through.

    Screen-Printed Motifs

    Plain-white bedroom accessories are the perfect blank canvases for customizing with screen-printed motifs. Graphic, leafy motifs repeat across the edge of a pillowcase, form rows on a duvet, and add a pop of color to the side of a flat lampshade.

    Editor's Tip: Make it last! Use screen-printing ink for fabric that becomes permanent when heat-set.
