Screen Printing

For those unfamiliar with screen printing, an explanation may be order! Screen printing is a process where a woven mesh screen is utilised to support an ink blocking stencil. Areas which are to be blank are coated with an impermeable substance. The mesh is placed over the paper or fabric and ink is pushed through the mesh when pressure is applied via a fill blade or squeegee. The process deposits an even layer of colour onto the substrate. One colour is printed at a time and so several screens are needed to produce a multi-coloured image. The technique is an effective means of producing multiples of an image and is a great way of exploring the use of colour. Our screen printing collection includes acrylic screen printing sets and neoprene squeegees.

Etching

Etching is a form of intaglio printing. An image is burnt into a metal plate (usually copper, zinc or steel) by exposure to acid. The plate is cover with a waxy, acid resistant material (ground). The artists then scratches off this material with an etching needle where a line is to appear in the finished image. This exposes the bare metal and the acid "bites" or burns into the exposed area leaving sunken lines. The ground is then cleaned off the plate which is then inked all over. The ink is wiped off the surface leaving ink only in the etched lines and the plate is applied to paper using a press. Explore our range of etching plates and accessories.

Lino Block and Relief Printing

Block printing is a form of relief printing. Here images are cut away from blocks with what remains forming the positive shapes and lines of the finished work. Lino and wood are most commonly used for the process. Once the image has been cut, ink is rolled and applied to the paper or fabric to print the image. Here we have a selection of lino blocks, woodcut blocks, cutting equipment and printing sets for you to choose from.
