Roller printing

technique for the printing of textile fabrics, which typically uses rollers compiled from a mass of various inks in such a way that individual colours form the pattern. In subsequent printing, if conditions are right the printed textile fabric takes (copies) from the roller a thin layer of ink, which is made colour-fast by the subsequent application of another technique. As a consequence of permanent colour copying, the number of metres available for print by roller is limited, and a reduction in the circumference of the roller means a reduction in elements and the length of the pattern repeat. A colour-mass treatment allows the creation of a wide range of marble and mottle effects.
