silk-screen prints

Decorative end- and cover papers produced by the same principle as the stencil print, except that the paint is forced through a cloth, producing a printing quality. Paint used for these papers can be made from a mixture of frothed wallpaper or wheat paste and water, to which poster or powder paint has been added. It should be the consistency of whipped cream, but thin enough to flow freely and not clog the screen. Silk-screen paint may also be used. The less pigment used the more transparent the color will be. (183 )
