Hi, I'm Melina and welcome to Expert Village. Today, I'm going to show you how to make a
screen print design on a t-shirt. In this next step, I'm going to talk about color selection.
You want to make sure that when you select a paint color, you pick something that is
going to match with your t-shirt or your jeans or whatever it is you?re printing on. I'm
trying to go for earthy tones, so I've picked out a green t-shirt that has a very light
color. I've selected an umber paint. Umber is kind of a reddish brown. These two colors
look good together. If you?re printing on black, it can be done. The only thing is that
it may over time fade into the black or it may not pop out as much. It can be done, but
you may have to print over the same area twice. You'll find that it is almost impossible to
align it. If you are going to print on black, what you may get is a print and then you'll
have to print over it again probably with another color because you don't want it to
look like it's been shaking around. If you are going to print on black, you want to make
sure that you use a color that is going to pop out, so you want to maybe use like a neon
color, a bright yellow, or a bright pink. The last thing that you want do is use a dark
color because it's not going to come out.
