Hello, I have a job where the design has a gradiant. It goes from a dark green and then fades to a lighter green. I was thinking of doing it in a 2 colour separation, but I want the colour to fade into the lighter green, just wondering how to go about this?
Just to give some info, im using water base inks


Thank you

Hi, just wondering if you ever done a split fountain screen print on dark garments, using waterbase inks and if so, do you have any tips?
No, I've never tried a split fountain. I would balk at not being able to recover the ink from the screen, as I generally print in small quantities, so wouldn't want to waste that much ink for a few shirts.

That said, a "simple" way to halftone a two-color gradient is to create the tone range you want as a grayscale fill. Convert that to a halftone. Make a copy of that and inverse the color, so white becomes black, and black becomes white. Print those two films and the two colors will be interlocked and fade into one another without any gaps between halftone dots. The details of "how" depends upon what software you are using.
