Default Serigraph

Can someone tell me what the serigraph technique is? I've seen some samples but I'm not sure what the "technique" is. I feel dumb asking but I rather ask that miss out on something!

Beate has some quickie instructions on that card.

Daven's working to put up the tutorial in the Resource area of the site. Be on the look out for it!

Hope this helps!

Here - I went online to find some instructions and put together something I thought made sense.


SERIGRAPH TECHNIQUE

SUPPLIES:
4 coordinating inks (works best with monochromatic colors, light to dark)
White Cardstock
Brayer
Talcum Powder
Stamps (1 bold or solid image stamp, 1 background or abstract stamp & 1 greeting stamp)
Embossing Ink
White embossing powder
Heat tool
Black embossing powder

INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Brayer layers of inks, using two of the colors (starting light to dark) and overlapping the colors. Cardstock should show both colors, but there should also be white space showing.
2. Rub talcum powder over front of card. (Note: Talcum powder works as an anti-static medium to prevent embossing powder from sticking to previous layers of inks.) Remove excess powder.
3. Stamp and emboss in white the image & background stamps randomly over card.
4. Brayer the two remaining colors over the remainder of the cardstock, overlapping colors so all of the 4 colors show on the card.
5. Using the darkest ink color, stamp the image and background stamps randomly over the card.
6. Repeat step #2
7. Stamp and emboss in black the greeting image.

Brandy--

Beate's sample: http://splitcoaststampers.com/galler...cat=all&page=1

Is for me, the most impressive example of serigraph I've ever seen. A lot has to do with her color scheme--it is SO vibrant and really showcases the effect of the technique?

And, altho, like LunarLana my trademark colors are gable green, turquoise, etc., I've been on a total yellow and red kick ever since I saw this sample right here!

helpful hint of the day:
our next version of the gallery software will bring with it shorter urls, but until then, when sharing a gallery link you can stop after the "photo=xxxx" part. the other junk is just junk, and not needed.

Cool--thanks, Daven. Actually, I just selected and copied the link as it was in my browser then hit paste so it wasn't hard--probably quicker than typing it . . .

I wouldn't have known about the other trailing info being "non-essential"!

That's how much I know about 'puters! LOLLOLLOL!
