A quiet, reflective image of a forgotten time. This 10 colour silkscreen is printed on Somerset Velvet, a heavyweight 300 gram handmade paper from St Cuthbert's Mill in Somerset. The print is in a limited edition of 50.
A colour silkscreen print is created by building up an image with several layers of individually printed colours. This process is called colour separation. Each colour has its own 'positive' which is made on acetate or tracing paper (see photos for reference) which is then exposed to a UV light with a screen coated in photo-sensitive emulsion.
This print will be carefully rolled in sent in a strong parcel tube.
