"This practical and resource book is the guide to water-based screenprinting. With clear step-by-step instructions and 265 illustrations, most in full color, it explains and describes methods and materials that replace traditional toxic screenprinting systems. The water-based way is the modern option - safer, healthier and more environmentally friendly, as well as quick to learn and accessible to all." "The book covers every stage of the printing process and opens up new areas of creative possibilities. Whether you wish to print using paper, stencils, screen filler stencils or photostencils [incorporating autographic, digital, photocopied or photographic elements], with opaque, translucent, metallic, gouache or acrylic paints, on paper, fabric, metal or PVC, renowned practitioners and art educators Robert Adam and Carol Robertson show you how to do it." "From choosing which materials to use and how to use them, through setting up and equipping a water-based screenprinting studio, to collating and presenting finished prints, this comprehensive reference book - complete with list of international suppliers and glossary - is the only resource any art practitioner, educator, student or designer will ever need."--Jacket
