Printing is my absolute favourite thing to do. No matter what the imagery, having drawings on a screen and bringing all the individual layers/ colours together into a final image is a beautiful process. Lots of it relies on great preparation - but there is always an element of luck and how things go on the day.
Below are photographs to show the layers of colour being added to a print. Each one has to be done one at a time, with the screen washed in between and the ink given time to dry on the paper before the next layer is added. You must be very careful with each colour to ensure that the design is registered properly - that is to say, all the colours need to be printed into the right place. The more colours, the more complicated this becomes.
