Gilding for Silkscreen – Advanced Course
Level: Advanced (must be experienced with silkscreen process)

Learn how to add striking flashes of metallic surface to your screen prints with this new advanced course from LP. Our new gilding for silkscreen course combines silkscreen with gilding using sheets of metal leaf. It’s aimed at those who are already proficient with the silkscreen process and who wish to expand their skill set and design possibilities by introducing metallic surface areas to their screen prints. The technique is especially suited to bold, graphic imagery as opposed to fine lines or detail.
This course will include:

  • An overview of the process with examples of work and a Q & A
  • Preparation of imagery and transfer of imagery to screens
  • Printing of imagery in red (necessary for use with gilding)
  • Application of glue/varnish
  • Application of metal leaf to prints
  • Dusting of prints
  • Second application of metal leaf to prints and dusting of prints
  • Final Varnish

Participants will receive full support throughout every step with ample opportunity to ask questions and troubleshoot common issues with the tutor.
