The screen printing process uses a mesh screen made of nylon or fabric (originaly silk hence the name) stretched tightly over a frame made of wood or metal. A stencil is applied to the screen either manually or photochemically to create the image to be printed. Ink is then forced through the fine mesh openings using a squeegee that is drawn across the screen ("pulling a colour"). Ink passes through the screen only in areas where no stencil is applied, thus transferring the image onto the surface of the paper. Each colour is hand mixed and pulled using a different stencil, so a 6 colour silkscreen print has been printed on 6 times using 6 different screens.
