Rexstripe

A variation on the Vicolor process for application with Rex Rotary, Gestetner and other silk-screen inking mimeographs to produce multi-color mimeo work, developed by Dick Lupoff in his fanzine Xero. The silk screen could not be “painted” with different colored mimeograph inks in the way the cotton pads were in the Vicolor process, because the use of the silk screen inking process was specifically designed to distribute the ink evenly. However, Lupoff discovered that by introducing different colors to particular parts of the drum at the top of the machine he could produced a “striped“ color effect, and the way to continue the effect once the silk screen began to even out the combined colors was simply to apply the different colors again.
