Galvano Method

A technique for creating screens using nickel-electroplating technology. This method allows for color gradients since the screen can be constructed with different sized cells. The process involves exposing a photosensitized base to UV light. Then the unexposed chemical is washed away, and the base is placed in a nickel-plating solution to allow the nickel to plate the areas without the cured photosensitive solution.
