    it's a four color printing process. i don't really think it's a DIY thing.

    Your joking right? Okay so here's how to do it in a really quick and affordable manner. You said your experianced with screen printing, so im sure you already know about how to use photo emulsion/ blocking fluid etc. You can either - set up 4 screens with the same image, blocking out the area where you dont need color (would take a you a couple hours provided you have the supplies/room) and apply each color thru the screens, or you can use one screen and simply wash out the design with bleach/solvent and apply the ink/acrylic where necissary. Its fairly simple, and if you take the time to go get a book on it from the local library i think you would be better off. Hope this was of some help, good luck.

    On a side note, if you do alot of drugs prior to going into the darkroom to apply the photo emulsion.. your gonna probably spill shit all over yourself/ overcoat the screens.

    the printing you seek is all in the print process.
    and materials.

    INK, not the water based shit you might use at home but thick, nasty smelling, highly toxic, oil based ink.

    Flash dryer, this heat seals the ink infusing ti to the fabric, thus keeping it intact for the duration of its life.
