PROCESSING PROCESS : SHOWPOSTER (three of three)

The final step: screen-printing. Above are the separations for each color that were printed on acetate and then burnt into emulsion on a screen. Concetta Barbera was kind enough to photograph the printing, so rather then explain the process (which is not the point of this), I'll let her photos guide you through...









All in all they turned out pretty good. Screen-printing is truly a labor of love; its a big hullabaloo if you don't have the tools directly at your disposal, but the end result trumps digital prints any day. Below is the digital mock-up; the prints came pretty damn close. Thanks to my brother, and Timmy for help printing, and Concetta helping out with the photography.
