Do you know?...........Screen printing is not a painting. It is just printing only .Not like Fabric painting, it takes minimum time to work.  It is very very easy too…….. But after practice only perfection will come.
It will be very useful for ladies especially who having girl babies. Comparing with other craft materials materials used here are little expensive. But we can print whatever we want.

Here I have explained one type of screen printing that is called as glitter printing.


1. Glitter screen

2.Glitter powder

3. Glitter binder

4. Table gum

5. Squeezer

6. Any cotton Cloth.

1. Take glitter powder, glitter binder in a bowl and Mix them well.

2. Apply table gum on the table and spread the cloth in which we want to print. Then only it will not move. Note that the cloth must be wrinkle free.

3. Then place the screen over the cloth and place the mixture (which we already prepared) above the design using a spoon or a knife.

4. Now we should put some effort to apply that mixture in to and fro motion using the squeezer. Minimum 3 times we should do this. Then only take out the screen from the cloth. In there we can see the printed design. 

5. Similarly do lot of prints wherever we want.

6. Then let it to dry the cloth in sunlight for two hours.

7. Reverse ironing  is must after that.
