Printed Wall Art
To complete this three-color print, we used three screens -- one for each color of the design. Download the artwork using the link below, then trace each design onto a separate screen. Draw paint onto areas of each screen where ink should pass through the screen, and apply screen filler to all areas where the ink should not pass through.
