mainly on what materials work well that can be found cheaply to make the screens. I had an idea to use a quilting hoop as a frame, a sheer curtain as the screen, and make the design by creating a stencil and spray painting lots of clear gloss over the stencil and screen. do you think that would work? do you have any other methods that would work better for about the same cost?

theres a link on how to.
they used old stockings, but recommended against it and i would as well. a chiffon or organza would probably work well.

I have a small screen that I use. it's a frame with a porous piece of material stapled to it. I use plastic screen projector sheets to make durable, reusable stencils, but you might need something bigger because those are only 8x11. the right kind of paint is easy to find, if you have a utrecht or some art supply store. the trick is to make sure that when you're screening, you apply enough pressure so that the paint comes out clearly enough, but not so much that you ruin your stencil and bleed paint all over. it's like stamping.
