Sleep Tee Upgrade

I acquired a stack of sleep tees from Lands End in preparation for a hospital stay, and this weekend I decided they were boring.  The first one I upgraded got a foil initial:


The second one allows me to take Murphy the puppy with me:


I silk screened these using some photos I had taken…

The initial photo:


The edited design:


And the screen:


I’ve been using a product called PhotoEZ.  It comes in sheets and is exposed using UV light — I use sunlight.  It’s a trifle temperamental, but I gather all screen creating technologies are, in one way or another, and isn’t nearly as expensive or space-hogging as a Thermofax machine.  I definitely need more practice, but it’s really fun!

    Those look great!! How sunny does it have to be in order for the UV light to expose the sheets?

    My brief experiments show that January in Wichita requires about 11 minutes to expose the screen, while July only needs about a minute. It’s been so nice lately that I didn’t have any trouble finding a few clear minutes; I’ve not tried in on a cloudy day.
