Screenprinting

Screenprinting is the medium that was used prolifically by the likes of Andy Warhol and Roy Lichenstein and is a very popular printmaking technique whereby a mesh is used to transfer ink onto fabric or paper, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. A blade or squeegee is moved across the screen to fill the open mesh apertures with ink, and a reverse stroke then causes the screen to touch the paper or fabric momentarily along a line of contact creating the print.
