Spooky Screened October

By Evan of Evan Webster Ink

Penzance screen printed costume.

In honor of October I'm writing about costumes. Personally, I wait until October 31st to figure out what to wear for Halloween. But screen printing can be a great way to make costumes and I really enjoy thinking about and making screen printed costumes. They are a good excuse to play around with specialty inks (think glow-in-the-dark, neon, puffy or glitter!). For a school play in Brookline I used metallic silver ink to portray buttons and a police person's badge.

I wish screen printing was more useful for making individual costumes but, because of set-up times, it's ideal for a minimum of fifteen of the same item. So grab some friends and dress as members of the Dharma initiative!

Have a safe and happy Halloween from Evan Webster Ink and Boston Handmade!
