A new "how to do it " book by Inkspot owner Jane Sampson.
Aimed not only at the beginner, who may have little or no knowledge of the process of screenprinting, but also at more experienced printers who would like to brush up their technique or bring themselves up to date. It is divided into chapters that cove a wealth of different screenprinting methods, from simple ones that can be achieved on a table top at home with minimum equipment, to those that require a professional studio or workshop set-up. Each chapter is lavishly illustrated with clear step-by-step photographs that lead you through each procedure including:
•using paper stencils and filler stencils
•monoprinting through the screen
•making positives for photo-exposure by hand and on the computer
•making high contrast positives and posterisations
•interpreting photographs in print
•special sections on bitmaps, halftones and making colour separations.
