Harwood King Printmakers

Silkscreen using 35 colours from a painting by Lizzie Richards. The use of multiple colours was used to create a painted texture to the final
image.Creating the separations for the print required us the think about where the texture
would be created. A set of cmyk screen printed colours was used as a starting point but then individual colours were separated and printed
using artist pigments to closely match that of the original. Flatbed Digital Varnish with a little black
was added at the end of production to help add a varnish texture to some areas.

First it was resized to the format of the print and then divided in layers representing the dominant colours and colour shades of the original (the surrounding  cityscape has been built up with the same colours). These layers were converted in halftones of 420 dpi. Clichés were printed out with a EPSON Stylus Pro 7450 printer on StarPrint Polyester Ink Jet Film and then copied to the screens, these stretched with a SEFAR PET1500 120-34 and SEFAR PET1500 100-55 mesh. Printing was done on a hand printing table Siri-Drucktisch of Bochonow Maschinenbau. 14 transparent and translucent layers were printed on Crescent cardboard of 2 mm.: grey, dark blue, bright green, red, yellow, orange, brown, dark red, ocre, blue, grey-violet, broken white and 2 black tones.
