The tutorial is great and thorough, and I love your handwriting & drawings too! Just one questions I've never quite understood about screen printing: what's the difference between normal stenciling and screen printing? Except the fact that stenciling seems so much more simple :-D I feel like a dumbass for asking this, but I've just always wondered about it..

screenprinting.. you have an actual screen that you are pushing ink through. you use some kind of emulsion to create a stencil ( not actually a stencil you cut., but the blocked off section you create), but that stencil is put onto the screen, the rest of the screen is blocked off, and then ink is pushed through. this allows for good detail and a really nice even spread of ink w/o using a lot of it.

with stencils, you just make a stencil and roll ink over it.


With my tutorial you can create a burned image without having to manually paint in the areas with photo emulsion, the light bulbs will literally burn the image, so if you want a photo screen printed, you literally could. and it would be details, so long as you put tht image onto a transparency. A screen would enable you to make this.whereas a stencil would constrict you in that sense,
What dictates what technique your going to use is how detailed the image is.

For example..you want to make a patch of lets say a crucifix logo like this:
Image
you would use a stencil,

for soemthing like this septic death logo..that's a little more complex.:
Image
i mean you could technically do a stencil if you so choose to spend that much time.or to put your skills to the test... but for beginners or people with not alot of time to kill . AND also you would have a master copy that would last much longer than a stencil.you would probablly make a screenprint

i'd say stencils are easier for home projects and making simple patches... but your getting pretty much as simple as you can get., but screenprinting is more professional.. and allows for more freedom and more details.. but the standard screenprinting methods require a lot of materials, so stencilling is more convenient for beginners.

As you begin to familiarize yourself with both techniques you will find a particular one thats easier for you and suits you needs more. I dunno which one would be more suitable.. that's the beauty of it, self discovery.. and you may find one that you enjoy doing more over the other. I hope i helped..any more questions don't be affraid to ask. no question is stupid... it's stupid not to ask. :P
