Printmaking Techniques

Silk-Screen

 

A print is made by passing ink or paint through a screen of fine silk or nylon, on which a stencil is suspended.

The stencil may be made of adhesive film which has been cut by hand or prepared photographically. Alternatively the stencil may be brushed on in the form of a coating.

The image is usually built up using a number of screens with different stencils, each one used to print a separate colour.
