Screen Printing Hand Drawn Designs with Grain Mark Screen Film

Wednesday, August 01, 2018

We often talk about creating digital images to make exposed screens but there are a lot of ways to use hand drawn designs that bypass the need for computers at all - hooray! Grain Mark Screen Film allows you to draw directly onto a screen film whilst maintaining all your lovely textural marks. Charcoal and black oil pastels work particularly well. Here's a project using Grain Mark Screen Film to print some fabric: Read more

What's a Halftone? Screen Printing a Tonal Image

Wednesday, July 18, 2018

People often want to screen print photographic images and hope to use black and white photographs for this. To do this you need an exposed screen. The way screen printing works is the mesh either has to be open or closed (ink passes through the open areas but cannot pass through the closed areas) therefore grey tones do not work. To make a photographic image work we have to fool the brain into thinking that there are grey areas.  Read more

Thursday, June 21, 2018

When we think of screen printed artwork we tend to see bold areas of bright colour and graphic lines but there are lots of different styles that can be achieved. By using graphite directly onto the mesh of a screen we can create loose, printed sketches that can be used for layering or as prints in their own right.  Read more

How Much Detail on Exposed Screens?

Thursday, June 07, 2018

When designing artwork for exposed screens it can be very difficult to figure out what level of detail you can include. Different mesh counts will be able to handle different levels of detail. The mesh number relates to how many threads there are per cm of mesh: 32T has 32 threads per cm, 120T has 120 threads per cm etc. Ideally, 43T mesh is used for printing onto fabric and 90T is used for printing onto paper. We've put together a quick test to see what detail can be achieved on our two most common meshes: 43T and 90T.  Read more
