Melissa of Mulberry Creek has graciously share her printing on photo frames tutorial with us.
Before the frame is placed under the screen for printing it is very lightly sanded and any paint removed from the back. We then go over it with a tack cloth to remove any dust particles left from sanding. After loading the screen with ink, the frame is then placed underneath and the squeegee is drawn down over the screen forcing the ink through the design and onto the surface of the frame.
After the ink is applied the frame is then removed and placed on a drying rack to dry overnight. After the ink is thoroughly dry we then apply a coat of a satin polycrylic varnish.
Clips and foam board are then inserted in the photo opening.
Thank You Melissa for sharing this tutorial with us.
