Screen print reduction

photo emulsion stencil with empty spots. The emulsion is purple and the yellow is the opening in the screen

the yellow is the open screen where the ink passes through, the red is screen filler which blocks the ink

three color (on top of another print)- orange went down first, screen filler added, green was printed, screen filler added, blue/gray was last

This is a screen print reduction on a recycled print. A ‘reduction’ is made by reducing the printable area in between each pass of color. Screen filler is an easy way to so this, just paint a little more on the screen and let dry for each color. I use this technique quite a bit in my prints, it combines well with photo emulsion stencils and is a good direct way to work on a stencil.
