When I started screenprinting, I used credit cards. They were cheap and always on hand. Then I bought a real screen squeegee. It is an 8 inch one with a rubber edge and a wooden handle. I like it, but it is a little unwieldy because of size and doesn’t always fit inside every screen. I can’t imagine using a larger one. Then I heard about Bondo scrapers. So off to Auto Zone I went. Yep, they had them…and this is what they look like.
Here are my observations:
1. credit cards are too small to get a good grip with your hands,
2. regular squeegees can be a bit bulky to handle, but are large enough to get a good grip with your hands, and
3. Bondo scrapers are wonderful…they have a bit of give, they are a good size for your hand…I love them!
