Screenprint - Screen printing

Screenprinting, also known as silkscreen printing, is a versatile and widely used printmaking technique that involves creating an image by using a stencil and a fine mesh screen. The screen is coated with a light-sensitive emulsion that hardens when exposed to light. A stencil is placed on the screen, and ink is applied to the screen's surface. Using a squeegee, the ink is forced through the open areas of the screen onto the printing surface, such as paper or fabric. Each color requires a separate screen and pass through the press, allowing for layering and vibrant color effects. Screenprinting is popular for producing posters, T-shirts, art prints, and more. It offers bold and flat areas of color, making it suitable for graphic and illustrative work.
