Print Techniques

Serigraphy

This print technique is also known as screen-printing or silkscreen. It is a stencil technique that employs fabric stretched tight on a screen support frame. The artist blocks out areas on the fabric and applies ink with a squeegee. The ink covers everything except the blocked-out sections and the image appears on the paper, canvas or other surface placed beneath the screen.
