Silkscreen printing comes from Japan and became known in Europe around 1930. Another name for an artistic printing is silkscreen printing. To explain the principle behind the technique is quite simple. First a piece of fine mesh made out of silk, polyester or steel is strained on a window frame. Hence the name of the technique is also named after this mesh (literally silkscreen printing). It is a stencil method of print making in which a design is imposed on the fine mesh, with blank areas coated with an impermeable substance. Then ink is forced into the mesh openings by the fill blade and by wetting the substrate. As a result the ink is transferred onto the printing surface during the fill blade stroke. When the screen rebounds away from the substrate the ink remains on the substrate.
Also one color is printed at a time. Therefore several screens can be used to produce a multicolored image or design. Furthermore different ink is needed for different materials. Although the principle behind the technique is simple, making a silkscreen is not. Because craftsmanship is needed to make sure every new layer of ink is printed correctly.
