The printing proces is an ancient technique that originated in China, where silk was stretched on a wooden frame – which is why the technique is also known as silk-screen printing.
Today, polyester or metal fabric is used, which is stretched on a metal screen which, with the application of dense, photo active emulsion, forms the image to be printed. With the blocking emulsion, ink only penetrates the fabric in the intended pattern.
The design is built up of layers with the use of a unique screen for each printing.
In the structure of each screen, screen materials are assessed in combination with the subject’s level of detail and layer thickness.
