You know those class videos you watch where the teacher has a droning voice and you can barely pay attention? And the other ones you bought that are simply a waste of valuable time because there isn’t any real meat?
Thermofax 101: Screen Printing Made Easy with Lyric Kinard is NOT one of those!
Lyric is cheerful and fun in her video and she makes you feel like you are there with her rather than watching a video. She is also willing to let you see her mistakes and shares how she could ‘fix’ them.
Thermofax 101 contains all the important information that you need to be successful in Thermofax screen printing and has some great extras such as other materials to use instead of paint, how to design your own screens and more.
Of course, you know…I love her section on creating an idea sampler book to use as a record of experiments and ideas for the future. Lyric also shares some great ideas for creating masks and using transparent extender for ghost printing.
If the design aspect of printing your own fabric makes you cringe don’t worry! Lyric has a great section on Color and Design that covers the most important basics without going into so much detail that you get lost.
Two thumbs up for sure!
I use Thermofax screens on fabric and paper! This image is from one of my journals. You can find the screens I sell on the Shop page! Or send me your designs to create your own original screens.

Hi Liz, I'll be the first to comment here. I love the shape of ocotillos. Hard to do without a thermofax. Since I now have added a hubby made screen printing pad to my studio, I'm all set. Would love to win Lyric's DVD. Kathy

I would love to print trees. I am just beginning to do some printing and this would be such a great resouce. Thanks!

I like to print trees, but the shapes I like the most are circles. They embrace everything. There is not beginning, and no ending. Circles are purely and simply magic.
Thank-you for the opportunity to win Lyric's DVD.
Being from New Mexico I love the Road Runner so I'd like a screen print of a Road Runner. Wherever I go I look for Road Runners in Charms and Stencils and only rarely do I find them.
You are the winner of the DVD! e-mail me your info firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get the it sent out to you.
