offers a degree of precision not achievable by hand painting, as shown

"Bull's head" and "number 2" are good examples of commercial applications for screenprinted tiles. The former, taken from an old compliment slip, took pride of place above the counter in a butcher's shop. The latter was for the stairwell in a multi story car park with different colours for each floor.
As well as regularly working on large scale murals such as swimming pools and motorway services, Delia was once involved in the production of an underground panel for the Elephant and Castle station. The detail shown here depicts a screenprinted reproduction of a sepia photograph.
