For example, I have seen the Reverse of an image, printed on the inside of a very thin shirt, to give it a highly "washed out" look, from the front

Or the use of clear ink, to sort of hide the image in the shirt...

Or.....

Does anyone have any cool Printing tricks to share?

thanks!

I like the use of clear ink to enhance parts of a design. I did this recently on a design and it turned out pretty neat :)

Another member here had some unique screen printing methods (jayallen.biz)

Anybody else?

Screenprinting velvet with acid dyes. Someone told me about an artist/fashion designer who printed with emulsion (I doubt you could use that one, just thought it was interesting). I know of a couple of fashion designers who do the print inside out thing to good effect. Nothing else is springing to mind just yet... part of the problem is that one person's strange is another person's normal (polychromatic dye printing for example), and part of it is that you just kind of do it when the moment calls for it.

Screenprinting glass with an etching fluid. Looks sensational (and means you can make a $500 complex etched window for about $40)

Any good supplier.
Mines called Crystal Gel.
Its an effect ink designs to put on top of another ink, so it gives off a shiny gloss look.

Good luck!

This is something that I find interesting.
What equipment and supplies do you use to screen print on glass with etching fluid?
I have seen liquor bottles with some sort of embossed printing on it that looks like it is etched/raised on the glass. The Van Gogh vodkas use colors and look like what you are talking about, I think.
Would you elaborate further on this style of screen printing please?
