2016 Calendar - split fountain screenprint

I screenprinted this 2016 calendar last week using the "split fountain" technique, my first attempt at the process. I won't detail the process here as there are plenty of tutorials and lessons online which explain it in plenty of detail, but it basically involves screenprinting two colours simultaneously, ideally creating a smooth transition/blend between them.

In the case of these calendars, I printed two versions - a cyan/magenta split fountain with a black overlay, and a red/green split fountain, some with a silver overlay and some with a black one. The calendars are printed on Fabriano Liscia 300gsm paper and measure 50x70cm.
