The printing of a serigraph is metaphorically like making a sandwich but instead of layering foods the artist layers printed colors. The first color is the slice bread, the second is the mayo, the third the tomato and so on and so on.  Using a separate silk screen for each color, I print the color, one on top of the other, until the image is complete. Each color needs to be perfectly registered so that it “lays down” in exactly the right place. After each color is printed, the prints are laid out to dry on drying racks and then re-stacked in the exact order they were printed in.
