Subject: Storing acrylic silkscreens

Storing acrylic silkscreens

From: Joseph Segal <info>
Date: Sunday, August 5, 2007
I completed an edition of acrylic silkscreens a few months ago that
used quite a bit of transparent medium. There are probably around
ten coats of ink on each print. The edition was run on Arches 88
which is a silkscreen paper. The amount of ink made the prints look
like plastic rather than ink on paper. The prints slightly stick to
one another leaving a texture on the surface. Glassine became
wrinkled when used as an interleaving and transferred the wrinkle
pattern to the print's surface. I was told that there is a silicone
paper that might work better but wanted to know if this is an
acceptable method for storing prints and if one type of paper might
work better than another. The print size is 30 x 16 inches.
