Split Fountain Screen Printing

Printing gradient with non-commercial print shops limits me to achieve rich colors so I decided to screen print my invitation to mimic the vibrant ocean blues.  To achieve the gradient effect, I screen printed my invitation with the split fountain technique using 6 colors that I premixed. It look a lot of time to perfect the gradient because sometimes the screen gets clogged after pulling so much and the ink runs out quickly after few pullst. It look a lot of practice and experimentation of how much ink I should place and the different pressure I had to apply in each pull. In the end, the invitation turned out really well as I was able to achieve my concept and print vivid colors.
