Learning how to make silk screen stencils is an opportunity to create unique designs for clients or your own pleasure. There are three different materials that can be used to make silk screen stencils -- a mesh screen, fabric or paper. Start with a simple design and decide which of the following methods works the best for you.
 
  
[[Category:Fabric Printing]]
 
 
==Steps==
 
===Make Silk Screen Stencils on Screens===
 
#Create a design on the computer or draw and scan in your design.[[Image: silkscreen stencil 1.png|center]]
 
#Print your design onto a transparency sheet.[[Image:Silkscreen printing 2.png|center]]
 
#Cover each side of your screen with a thin layer of emulsion. You can use a squeegee to spread the emulsion evenly on both sides.[[Image:Silkscreen stencil 3.png|center]]
 
#Place the screen in a dark room or box for approximately 2 hours until the emulsion is thoroughly dry.[[Image:Silkscreen stencil 4.png|center]]
 
#Put the transparency stencil on the screen and apply pressure with a piece of clear glass to make sure the stencil stays flush with the screen.[[Image:SILKSCREEN STENCIL 5.png|center]]
 
#Shine UV lights on the screen for about 10 minutes to set the design.[[Image:SILKSCREEN STENCIL 6.png|center]]
 
#Wash out the screen with cold water.[[Image:SILKSCREEN STENCIL 7.png|center]]
 
===Make Silk Screen Stencils on Fabric===
 
#Cut out a piece of sheer fabric several inches larger than the design you wish to silk screen. [[Image:SHEER FABRIC STENCIL 1.png|center]]
 
#Put the sheer fabric in an [[Embroider|embroidery]] hoop, making sure that the fabric is smooth and pulled tightly. There should be at least {{convert|1|in|cm|adj=on|1}} of fabric outside of the embroidery hoop.[[Image:SHEER FABRIC STENCIL 2.png|center]]
 
#Trace or [[Draw|draw]] your object onto the fabric with a pencil.[[Image:SHEER FABRIC STENCIL 3.png|center]]
 
#Paint non-water soluble glue onto the fabric where you don't want ink to transfer through when you use the stencil to make a silk screen image.[[Image:SHEER FABRIC STENCIL 4.png|center]]
 
#*Cover the entire fabric area around the outline of the design using a large paintbrush. If you are planning on using a stencil brush instead of a squeegee to make the silk screen image, then an inch or so of glue around the design will suffice.
 
#*Use smaller [[Clean a Paintbrush|paintbrushes]] to cover areas within your design where you don't want color to appear.
 
#Let the glue dry for about 45 minutes to an hour before placing the stencil on the fabric you wish to silk screen.[[Image:SHEER FABRIC STENCIL 5.png|center]]
 
===Make Silk Screen Stencils From Paper===
 
#Draw or trace a design onto paper. Newsprint works fine, but wax paper is a better choice if you intend to use the stencil more than once.[[Image:PAPER STENCIL 1.png|center]]
 
#Cut out the stencil with scissors, but use a stencil knife to get a clean line on inside edges or intricate designs. [[Image:PAPER STENCIL 2.png|center]]
 
#Place the stencil on the fabric in the exact position you wish your design to appear, and place the screen over your stencil.[[Image:PAPER STENCIL 3.png|center]]
 
 
== Tips ==
 
*You also can make plastic silk screen stencils by following the steps for making paper stencils.
 
*If you are making a design with several different colors, you must create a stencil for each color.
 
 
==Things You'll Need==
 
*Transparencies
 
*Emulsion
 
*Squeegee
 
*Screen
 
*UV lights
 
*Sheer fabric
 
*Embroidery hoop
 
*Pencil
 
*Large and small paintbrushes
 
*Non-water soluble glue
 
*Newsprint or wax paper
 
*Scissors
 
*Stencil knife

However, if you ask for ''nihonshu'' (meaning "wine of Japan") they should understand what you are asking for.<ref>http://boutiquejapan.com/sake101/</ref>

*'''Don't just "ignore it."''' This is a common route for most co-workers when faced with one with attitude. It won't solve the problem, and in fact, might even empower your aggressive co-worker to give even more attitude to you and other co-workers.

*'''Do not tolerate people accusing you of being a "rat" or "tattletale".''' If you go to supervisors, other co-workers may confront you about "tattling." Your best response is to say something to the effect of "well, if you think I'm a tattletale, why are you harassing me about it? That is clearly intimidation."

*'''Beware if the person has close connections with the boss''' - especially if you work in an "at will" employment situation. But also be aware that "at will" does not mean your employer is completely off the hook for firing you or laying you off if they don't have a really good (not manufactured) reason. You'll probably still be able to collect unemployment, unless they can actually prove a REALLY good reason for the termination (Unemployment bureaus are usually pretty good at distinguishing "convenience" excuses from legitimate ones.)
 
*'''Don't stalk your co-worker with the intent of getting revenge away from work,''' such as by getting his license plate number from his vehicle and reporting him to the police for speeding (on the roads he takes home) after his shift. You could still lose your job, or even go to jail.

Buy an Office Wardrobe on a Budget

*Invest in a good neutral shoe polish and buffing cloth or brush, or an all-in-one shoe shine kit with buffing sponge. There are inexpensive ones out there. Employers and managers do notice if your shoes are scuffed or worn. Taking care of your wardrobe is a way of telling them how much you care about your job as well. Polishing your shoes each day before you leave for work should become part of your regular routine (women often overlook this, but shouldn't).

* Tailoring is one of the least expensive personal services on the market today.  For men especially, having a thrift store suit altered to your size at a local dry cleaner makes great sense. For example, this author had a $600 Brooks Brothers suit purchased for $12 altered for $60.  A $72 suit is still pretty close to paying retail, but the custom tailoring makes the suit extra fine.

*While you should carefully inspect second-hand garments (those from thrift stores, garage sales, and the like) for stains and damage, remember that plenty of people discard professional wardrobes for good reasons, too.  They may have retired, moved to a more casual job, gained or lost weight, or simply decided that an item wasn't their style or pace.
 
*Keep one or two professional outfits on hand for formal occasions (interviews, gatherings, meetings with customers, appearing in court or city hall) even if your office is casual or you don't currently work in a setting that requires them.  Store them in a breathable garment bag so that they don't gather dust.  Those same couple of outfits could keep you going for a few days if you do get an office job.

*For women, twin sets (sleeveless shell and matching cardigan) are quite acceptable in most office situations, instead of a blouse and jacket.  The shell from the twin set can be worn under a jacket as well.  Avoid one that has spaghetti straps - your bra straps should not be hanging out at the office. Look for twin sets that can mix and match with your wardrobe. Two twin sets can go far - find one in a neutral and the other in a brighter accent color. Solids work best but a subtle stripe or trim on a twin set can dress up the look. To save money, try to find twin sets that you can launder by hand rather than dry clean.

Porcupines love chewing on antlers for the calcium content.  They will often locate the antlers for you, and drag them back to their homes.  There have even been reports of porcupines dragging small antlers into low hanging branches.  Most of these antler sheds will have chew marks and they will not be prime.

*If you are looking for elk sheds, it is often much easier to spot the antler rubs on trees that the elk make in the spring when their antlers get itchy.  Look for rubs on small trees in aspen stands.  At least you know that there is a bull with antlers in the area!  That gives you an area to search in.

*Uncoated heavy metals like zinc, lead (from plant weights) and elemental copper will kill shrimp, especially copper. If a tank has ever had elemental copper in it, you will have a hard time keeping shrimp alive. Copper sulfate in fish foods is safe as it is a copper compound in low amounts. The dangerous stuff is elemental copper (copper metal). The copper compound found in snail killing concoctions is toxic to shrimp and inverts because it is so concentrated.

*Many fish will eat adult shrimp, as well as baby shrimp. Any type of catfish, predator fish, angelfish, oscars, clown loaches, or eels will eat shrimp. If you have lots of cover, more babies will survive. Java moss makes excellent cover and forage.
 
*Do not remove any empty shells of molted shrimp. Many will consume this to get back valuable minerals.

*When deciding as to whether you wish to learn play the violin or viola, take into consideration the '''size of the hand.''' The viola, being the larger instrument, may work better than the violin for someone with large hands. Although this is sometimes helpful when deciding, it is more of a personality thing. For a person who is very outgoing and loves to be the spotlight, violin is usually the way to go, but if you are a bit more laid back and quiet yet passionate, then viola is a perfect instrument for you. If you wish for a very wide range of music to play, violin is the way to go. The viola has a smaller solo music library, but it is still very ample.
 
*If you are looking for a scholarship eventually through music, then viola is great because there aren't many decent players out there. Consequently, you are pretty likely to be put through college just for doing what you love to do. Competition in large orchestras is less for violas because there just aren't as many viola players as there are violinists.
