I just finished making my new printing surface, for printing on fabric. All my printing books suggest printing fabric on a cushioned surface. Here's what I did ...
I had some wood laying around and I covered it with batting + fleece interfacing. They are both thin so I combined them (1 layer of each). I sprayed the wood panel with Craft Bond spray adhesive, to prevent the batting from shifting. I covered the batting with muslin.
Here's the back. I used Tacky Glue to adhere the muslin to the back of the wood. I sealed the edges with duct tape. The wood was to thin for a staple gun (I learned that the hard way). It was easy and quick. Best of all, I didn't need to buy anything. I used whatever I had lying around.
Now that I'm printing on a thicker surface, I've added "props" to raise my screen. You don't want your screen touching the surface.
