Screen Printing Camp Supplies
Here are the supplies we used for camp! It’s costly to get started, but much of this is reusable or will last awhile. The bottle of emulsion covered the screens we used for camp I had very little left. The directions that come with the emulsion (or speedballs website) are good.
Screens $58 (these are wood. You can also buy aluminum which lasts longer but more expensive) They are a pain to clean so I recommend one per design.
Safe light $13
masking tape (take insides of screens)
screen clamps $12
extras $16 (filler & drawing fluid) Our screens worked without too many holes so we didn’t need the filler. We did use masking tape in a few spots
Black & white printer to print transparencies. Laser works best
Bulbs- $4 each. I bought 3 different types. The 300 watt bulbs from Lowe’s worked best they are hidden on the bottom shelf on the bulb aisle.
Light for bulb. $7. I used the bulb in a shop reflecting light 18” from emulsion
Black foam board $3 (put under screen for development)
I bought emulsion remover but it did not work well at all so I’m not sharing it.
