Stencil printing - a little messy and a lot of funTuesday, July 31, 2012Johanna
A while back me and Cattie got together to print our personal roller derby tank tops. Here you can see Anja supervising Cattie's print process. Notice the red wine in the background. This might explain my less than stellar result.
We used old school stencils that was kindly cut out by a teammate. The stencil is made out of overhead plastic sheets and the sponge is just some cheapo scotchbrite.
My white tank top looks better than the black one (which was a mess and I also forgot to photograph it) but even on this second try there are still blotches of colours here and there.
Cattie's vest. She clearly has a better knack for this than I do, or maybe she just deals with the combination of wine and stencil printing better?
Anyways it was a lot of fun and while I would normally be kinda disappointed making something that was less than perfect, but the punkish/DIY nature of roller derby somehow makes the end result suitable.
