Screen Print Textiles & Craft
Screen print is known as a printing technique where a mesh is used to transfer ink (or dye) onto a substrate, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil.
Screen Printing process involves creating a stencil on a mesh screen and then pushing the ink to create and imprint the design on the below surface. The most common surface used in screen printing is paper and fabric, but metal, wood, and plastic can also be used.
Screen printing has evolved from the ancient art of stenciling that took place in the late 1800s and over time, with modifications, the method has evolved into an industry. This technique was used on celebs like Marilyn Monroe and Elvis who put screen printing on the map and finally gave it the recognition it deserved as a form of fine art.
