Artist Caitlin Bodewitz found her perfect fit in the art world when she began screen printing – and she hasn’t looked back since. So, what exactly is involved in the process of screen printing? We found out.
“It is a process of, more or less, blocking the screen in certain areas so ink does not get through and leaving the screen open in certain areas so ink obviously does go through and onto your different surfaces,” says Bodewitz.
“Where the light goes through it hardens the emulsion, anywhere we have a black drawing the emulsion stays soft, and we’re able to rinse it away so then we get our stencil for our screen.”
