a catalog of hand made serigraphs by
Bruce Wood's serigraphs (also known as silk screen
prints or screenprints) are hand-printed by the artist. One stencil
is hand-made for each color in the print, with up to 48 used
to complete the image. The stencils are adhered to a tightly
stretched fine silk or synthetic fabric. This maintains all the
details in the stencil, and holds it in position during printing.
One color is mixed for each stencil. Paper is placed under the
screen, and ink is pushed through the open mesh (the part not
blocked by the stencil) with a squeegee. When the ink dries,
the next color is applied.
