Screen prints are formed by placing a thin layer of ink on a flat surface. This includes paper, t-shirts, metal, wood, etc. At Alchemic Print we use thick white paper and water soluble ink to create our prints
Yes and no. Like any other art medium printing has some flaws, and that's a good thing. Printing has the challenging task of placing ink layers on top of each other (Overlap) or side by side like a jigsaw (knockout) to create a final image. This process is time intensive, takes a lot of practice, and even when things go well many mistakes can happen. These in the art world are not seen as failures, more they are makers marks, signs of the artist. It is these marks that made me fall in love with printing. Seeing ink layer misaligned or bleed through there designated area gives the final work life.
