Also known as a silkscreen or serigraphy and originating from China, silk screen printing is a stencil based, planographic process. A wooden or aluminium frame is stretched with a woven fabric, originally made of silk, but now more commonly made of synthetic material. Ink is forced through a stencil of the negative image placed upon the fabric. Areas that are not part of the image are blocked out with a variety of stencil based methods such as cut paper or photographic emulsion. A squeegee is then used to press ink through the unblocked area of the screen, directly onto to paper or fabric.
