The Basic Methods of Fine Art Printing. Fine art printing has been in existence for more than we can remember and it was being done long before any technology was invented. They include the arts made by the most know artists of all time and others who have done pieces that affect the daily art business. The pieces of fine art take time and concentration to come out as successful pieces and there are failures behind every success. The most recognised methods of creating fine art pieces are intaglio, screen printing, planography and relief. They have been in use for over than five decades and are known to produce the best pieces. Below is a brief explanation of how all the above are done. The method that has been in existence the longest is the relief and was used to make some of the first major pieces. It is started by the artist cutting out a piece of material they want to use by a sharp method. Knives were used to curve out the wanted shapes out of wood. The cut pieces would then be sprayed with ink and pressed against the paper the art was to be printed on. The process would involve application of pressure for even application of the ink on the paper. The paper and the wood are given time to dry so as when they are being removed they do not tear up.
Figuring Out Printing
The planography method is done by ink being spread on a piece of stone and then removed. The piece of selected rock is applied with a lube most of the time, which is just oil. The paint is then applied with care not to pass through the layer of oil. Removing of the art work is done after the piece has dried up well fro completion.
Getting To The Point – Art
The screen-printing method involves the covering of the areas not to be printed out with the use of special glue. The method was the last to be invented and it is used to print many copies and is the most used form of printing currently. The prints can be made on pieces of clothes or paper depending on the need of the art. The last method is intaglio where by the art is done by woodcarvings. The piece of wood with the print side protruding is placed in ink and then pressed against the surface where the art is to be printed on. The most used surface for this type of art is paper and cloth but it can be applied on any surface that can take the ink. The processes can produce any size but the bigger the size the longer it will take to produce one. You therefore need to be cautious about deadlines.
