Screenprinting is basically a stencil process. A stencil is applied to a fine mesh (the screen) which has been stretched tightly over a frame. The stencil is painted, adhered, or exposed to the screen. The frame is set down on the paper and ink is then forced through the porous segments of the mesh with a flexible squeegee blade onto the paper below. Where the stencils cover the fabric mesh, the ink does not reach the paper. A separate screen must be created for each colour. As with other printmaking techniques, the artist may use multiple screens to create a multi-colour screen print. Screenprinting is one of the few printmaking processes in which pulling the print does not result in a reversed image.
