The word serigraph was first used in the late 1800s, derived from the Latin word for silk, sericum, and the Greek suffix -graphos which means writer or writing. A serigraph is a silkscreen print, though today more modern fabrics than silk are generally employed. To make a serigraph, the artist places a stencil on the fabric and forces ink through the places where the material is stencil-free. Each color in the piece must be applied with a separate screen. In a serigraph, the paint tends to sit on top of the paper and may be felt with a finger.
