In terms of screen printing my layered prints it was a long and difficult process. I had to make sure that the two layers would line up properly. I then had to edit the images in Photoshop to ensure that they were all clean and bitmapped correctly. I then took the images into in design in order to lay them out exactly where I needed them on the page.
I then printed these. After washing and putting emulsion onto my two screen I exposed the images and began printing. The Second layer of the illustrations did not come out as cleanly as I would have liked them to. I also found that the coloured paper looked nice, however too many colours was beginning to feel overcrowded. I wanted my prints to be perfect so I began the process again for my second screen.
I started fresh in order for me to get the most perfect finish.
The second time around on a different day in the print room I re printed the bottom layer images of my buildings again in order to get the perfect finish. I then tested printing my people again and they came out far clearer and the colour blue was really strong.
The screen print room then closed and I had to continue this another day.
Unfortunately, when I went back to the screen printing room on another occasion someone else had used my screen and it was re exposed with completely new images. This was really hard for me as I had already been back in the screen printing room twice to perfect my images and I had to take time to go and focus on something else. As a result I did not have the appropriate amount of time to repeat this process again and had to start planning a new way to complete my prints.
