Improvisational Screen Printing

Improvisational Screen Printing


90 pages, full color gallery representing the work of 30 artists

This 2002 self-published classic is the one book I have been asked to update over the past ten years. So here it is. Descriptions of a dozen surfaces, both permanent and impermanent, that can be used to print design elements using a standard wood or aluminum frame silk screen, which is available at any art supply. Processes include glue, wax, flour paste, water-based crayon, and thickened dye on the screen. Permanent processes include house paint, spray paint and the use of Thermofax screens. The book is loaded with tips and variations.

The appeal of these processes is their low-tech availability. Anyone can acquire a screen or two, read a chapter in this book, and get started immediately. The full color gallery inspires with works from more than 30 artists who have used these techniques successfully and have graciously shared their work.
