Ok?

And I people talk in a jokey and not what the proper names are, And they call things names that are off putting, Like that Meat thing.

Basically you transfer an image to a silk mesh sheet, impose a stencil-like thing onto it, and cover the rest of the sheet with stuff that prevents ink from being places other than the pattern.

Then you roll ink all over it, and presto--silkscreening!



(He is applying ink over a finished silk screen)

That website says:

Silk screen printing steps are as follows:

~ Prepare a stencil with the desired design or text cut out so that the ink passes only through the part that has been cut.
~ Put the work piece under the screen
~ Ink is applied at the top of the screen and fill bar is used to fill the mesh openings with ink
~ An applicator is used to force the ink through the silk screen and the prepared stencil onto the material to be printed.
~ The work piece is carefully removed from beneath the screen.

Sounds tough, That or I am too confused to see how easy it is, I understand some of what you do, But I haven't heard of half og the things that you use.

So call me a idiot when it comes to silk printing.

Just to clarify on Silkscreening, you almost had it Serika but you're missing one key part.

Once you have your stencil you place it on the screen, usually upside down so it appears backwards. The ink that they place on the screen is called an emulsion and is sensitive to high lights. Under a light process the places where the design is, the black, doesn't get hit, so it stays flexible, the rest becomes hard so you can wash away the design.

Then you print the ink through the empty spots onto whatever you want

Silk screening is a really really popular method of printing, and I like it.

Theatra, I was just outlining the basic definition, of course there's more to it XD
