Brandy With Fluted Roses Frame
Serigraphy requires diligence and handcraftsmanship for each print and is a very time consuming, multi-layered process. The integrity and authenticity of the Serigraph is found in its processes as explained below:
- An elite stencil printmaking process, which is different than a photographic giclée process.
- A masterful recreation of the original artwork by hand.
- Highly durable and made with pigmented inks to resistant to fading.
- A stencil or screen is created for each individual color in the original. Typically, 80-90 separate colors will make up one painting; hence 80-90 different screens are used resulting in 80-90 different layers of ink placed in various places on the canvas.
- Once a screen is created, a sheet of high quality, archival canvas or paper is then inserted under the screen and a special pigmented ink is poured along the edge of the frame that holds the screen - Areas, which do not print, are blocked in each of the stencil screens allowing ink to pass through the screen to specific areas of the painting, while prohibiting it from flowing through to other areas of the canvas.
- A flat fanlike tool is pulled from back-to-front along the screen pushing the ink through, resulting in a direct transfer of the image from screen to the canvas or paper.
- Only one color can be applied at a time.
- The canvas or paper must be fully dry before another color can be added.
- Due to drying times, only 2 colors can be applied in one day.
- This process is repeated layer on top of layer until the entire original print is recreated. - Complex works of art, with hundreds of colors, can take over 6 weeks or longer to produce.
