    This is lovely and I look forward to delivering a project along similar lines. I have been recently doing screen printing with my students (re self portraits) but we have had trouble with bleeding. I purchased a very fine mesh suitable for both paper and textile(as some of the students wished to realise their designs on t-shirts) . For the t-shirts we used freezer paper so there were no problems – but on the paper (which is what I was after primarily) we used cartridge and photocopy paper and both have bled. Does newsprint work each time without bleeding ..? I have used seawhite acylic paints mixed with an acrylic (silkscreen) medium. Would really like some tips as have spent hours researching.

    Hi Ellie – I had a quick chat with paula this morning – She apologises – she did post a reply which somehow didn’t get published! Yes! Use newsprint for best results – let us know how it goes!
    Cheers, Sheila
