Screen Printing Cork board... It works!
It all started with this cork board---which originally came dressed in pink satin with ribbons wrapped around it. $1. I snagged it, trading in the fabric for some time with my favorite Folk Art paints and brush.
You maybe can't see, but then I splashed some extreme glitter round' the edges. I'm not sure if I told you I moved, but I moved somewhere in the last few weeks. Whew. So glad it's over! I thought this cork board would look perfect for my notes and ideas above one of my work benches.
Most days, you can find me whipping up jewelry of some form, so I was hot to try the necklace screen. When you screen print cork, I recommend the brush technique or only squeegee-ing the paint down once.
