Screen Printing

Recently in the Print/Dye room I have learnt how to screen print. This includes exposing the image I want to print onto the screen. I have screen printed before but not exposed the screen so I was excited to learn how it is done. I chose to draw a crab surrounded by shells and seaweed, to keep to my sea theme.

My Exposed Screen

After exposing the screen, I printed with normal pigment onto some plain material:

I really like how I used two different colours, because they gently blend into each other and are make the print more interesting than just one colour.

This print is done in the same style as the one above, but I prefer the colours of this. I am very happy with the design, but I think that the lines may have needed to be a little bit thicker, as in some places it didn’t print properly.
