Silkscreen Prints, A Collection Of Pop-art Screen Prints By Doug Kemp

The process for creating silkscreen prints is similar to creating a stencil. Inks are forced through a mesh (called a silkscreen) onto a printed surface. This enables certain areas of the screen template to be impervious to the printing ink (AKA the stencil or mask effect). The ink that is able to pass through the screen forms the printed image on the artwork.

What Materials can be Used On Silkscreen printS?

Fabric and paper are the most commonly used silkscreen print mediums, however glass, wood, perspex and metal (particually aliminion) are also good surfaces for silkscreen printing.

Silkscreen Prints, The Process & Approach

Creating the design. The silkscreen printing process on a single colour is fairly easy but where multiple colours are used in the artwork, multiple screens are needed, one for each colour and part of the design used.

Preparing the silkscreen mesh block. In the original silkscreen print process, silk was the mesh material used. Modern alternative materials regularly used now include nylon and polyester, simply because the results are the same and these materials are far cheaper.

Photo emulsion used for Silkscreen PrintING

Photo emulsion used for creating a silscreen stencil. Photo emulsion paint is thinly applied to the front and back of the screen block.- Photo Emulsion is a light-sensitive paint that hardens in direct sunlight, so the initial paint drying (pre hardening) stage is done in a dark room.

Creating The Silkscreen Stencil using Photo emulsions

Placing the artwork design on the silkscreen. With the design held in place, usually with a piece of glass, the screen is placed under direct sunlight, here is where the photo emulsion hardens. Because the emulsion area underneath the blacked out (masked) area of the design held on the transparency sheet stays soft, it is possible to wash this area away, leaving a reverse mask on the screen block for the ink to pass through.

Printing the Silkscreen print. The block is placed on the printed surface, this can be fabric, paper, wood or even metal. At this stage, a layer of ink is skimmed evenly across the surface of the silkscreen block. The hardened photo emulsioned paint has created a stencil that prevents the ink from being applied in the undesired places. Multiple blocks are then used to create the different colours within the artwork.

NightClub Singers Artist Print Collection

The 1920s saw the emergence of many female musicians and singers including African-American blues singer Bessie Smith who went on to inspire women singers from later eras and to this very day.

The video featured here from ‘Babylon Berlin’, a German TV series, encompases just about everything Doug loves about the late 1920s nightclub scene. The music, the vibe and the banana girls. Other fruits are also available.

Babylon Berlin is a German speaking neo-noir television series and is set in the latter years of the Weimar Republic (1929).

The story follows a police inspector on assignment to dismantle an extortion ring, and Charlotte Ritter, police clerk by day, flapper by night, who aspires to become a police inspector herself.

Giclee Artist Prints

Spelt correctly Giclée is a French word for little squirt. This is a digital printing process in which a type of ink-jet printer is used with specialist inks to produce a high quality Art print. As an artist, I feel a Giclee/Giclée print produces a better finish than other types of modern artist printing formats.

Linocut Artist Prints

A Linocut is a relief print that is produced like a woodcut but uses lino as the surface from which the design is carved as a template used for the printing. In making a Linocut, basically your design uses the raised (uncarved) areas for the different inks to print the same picture over and over.
