An introduction to image preparation using Photoshop to create high resolution, halftone transparencies for the screenprinting process
Tutor James Cockerill of HALTglass will explore different aspects including halftones, photorealistic printing, tonal separation, layering, collage, colour separation and block stencil making skills using the photo of your choice as a starting point.
Using your selected image we will go through various photoshop settings to produce a huge variety of effects and results. Printing this using an inkjet printer using UV blocking ink, you should finish the day having a good understanding of how to use photoshop to make outstanding and detailed transparencies for the screenprinting process. Your A4 high resolution transparency will be ready to go on and be used for screen printing.
On booking James will send you image selection advice and request your chosen image in advance.
Absolute beginners welcome.
