Thermofax printing

My husband gave me a pile of old white t-shirts. Raw material. 
Four left now. Bottom one random dyed.

What to do? Print print cut dye print.
I had a pile of new screens I've been wanting to test.

My dad's class photo

a relative, a diagram, a design

And here's the first finished t-shirt:

I believe I wear it to work today.

Hi Linda - I am surprised at the clarity of the images done as screens based on photos - do you do anything special to the photo image before burning the screen to enhance the image?

Love your work,

I tweak them alot in Photoshop. Remove all color first. Then experiment with the commands, such as Adjust Levels. Posterize and Threshold are also good place to start.
