I've been screen printing for a while and I'm trying to print more detailed designs. This design would need half tones for the detail in the skulls right? It going onto a black tshirt so am I right in thinking its 3 colours? White purple then black halftones to blend the gradients in the skull?

If you are using regular WB ink, you'll need underbase under all of the purple ink. Apply more Dot Gain compensation to the under base halftone than the purple so you don't end up with white rings peaking through.

Or could use an opaque WB ink for the purple, like Permaset Supercover. Then you don't need an underbase.
