Mixed Media - mixing screenprinting and digital mediums
As experts in combining screenprinting and digital mediums, Jealous have worked with many prominent artists to create striking editions. The combination of digital print with screenprinted overlays introduces a new range of possibilities for the print edition, adding depth and texture.
Jealous’ Studio Team are at hand to advise the most suitable diamond dust weight and colour required to add a glittering three-dimensional element to your artwork. They also work with carborundum dust and wide range of glitters.
Cotton Mould Fine Art Papers and Materials
Jealous work closely with a range of independent paper suppliers and mills sourcing premium paper for printing. These range from the most beautifully delicate Japanese papers to high quality cotton hand-made and mould-made papers. The Studio have printed on many different substrates ranging from Perspex, glass, plywood, metal, wooden panels, paper, glassine and book cloth.
The printmaking process usually starts with hand-made or digital images, the Studio breaks the image down into colours and the resulting separations are then transferred onto screens, by printing them onto Acetate. The artwork may be drawn, sprayed or painted on transparent film called Tru Grain, hand-cut from paper or masking film or from a digital image: a photograph, a scan of a painting or drawing or an image created in the computer. Digitally printed acetates can range in size, reaching a maximum of 112cm by any length.
Educational workshops and live printing events
Jealous are dedicated to sharing the screenprinting experience and their teams’ vast knowledge during live events. Previous events have included live printing at the Royal Academy of Arts, Deutsche Bank London, Heals, Soho House, Latitude Festival, Facebook, FORA and many more.
Finishing - Debossing, Tearing and Cutting
There are a number of finishing options available to make each edition unique, including tearing down the edition creating a soft organic edge, cutting the edition creating a defined edge and debossing. Debossing creates an indent in a print similar in appearance to the plate mark of an etching. The effect can be used to define the edge of an image or create an outer border around an image, adding depth to the print.
Leafing in 24 carat gold, rose gold, copper, silver, palladium, tin or bronze adds a unique textured element to the artwork and can be applied to entire backgrounds or subtle highlights of the print.

Varnish can be applied to entire images, or specific details or areas in the print, enhancing the vibrancy of both screenprints or digital prints. We also offer tinted varnish colours, with soft glitter or pearlescent to further enrich your edition.
Water based ink
Jealous print with a range of eco-friendly water-based inks, mixing the colours in the Studio to colour match to the required shade. To add visible areas of relief or texture our printers can build layers of ink in any colour, including fluorescents, metallics and glow in the dark.
