Printing process

1 - The artist paints his work on a large paper canvas.

2 - The paper is scanned to image file in a large format scanner.

3 - The image is divided into colours, and each color is printed in black ink on a transparent.

4 - The silkscreen is covered with emulsion and dried. (A silkscreen is a fine mesh that allows paint to flow through it. The emulsion blocks the paint from getting through.)

5 - The transparent is fixed to the silkscreen and the screen is exposed using a powerful lamp. This hardens the emulsion that receives the light, leaving the emulsion behind the printed areas on the transparent unhardened.

6 - The unhardened emulsion is washed off with water.

7 - The silkscreen is fastened on top of a printing table, and the printing paper is placed underneath.

8 - Paint is applied and pressed through the silkscreen onto the printing paper using a squeegee.

9 - The print is left to dry in a rack.

10 - Steps 4 to 9 are repeated for each colour.
