WEEK18: SCREEN PRINT SESSION

Screen Print Session-27.Jan.2015 Tuesday

Today, we have a re-fresh session about Screen Print. The first thing to do the Screen Print is to coat the screen. The method to coat a screen is to do it from buttom to the top, which illustrates as image 1 and 2. And we need coat both front and back side of the screen.

After coated the screen, it needs a almost 4 hours to dry the screen. So basically, people should prepared the screen one day before the ‘real print’.

Once we lighten the illustration on to the screen, and finish all the prepare work, we can begin to do the Scree Print. As it mentioned on the below (Image 3) , designers need screen print the  images on a film, and use it to measure the pattern in the right position on the paper.

There are two ways to do the Screen Print. The first one is the usual method, which is do the print by our arms; the other one is use the ‘machine’ on the Screen Print Bed to do the job (Image 4). The second method to use the scrub (Image 5&6) is more suitable for people who would like to do the large format print.
