One method of decorating fabric is screen printing, in this a pattern is painted onto a fine silk screen with resist emulsion. The core of the screen print process involves a fine mesh, or screen, which is stretched very tightly around an unyielding frame. Any area that is not to be printed, will be masked out on this screen or mesh. To create the print, the framed screen is positioned over the item to be printed along with a splodge of thick ink. The ink is pressed through the screen.
