I was told that screens for each color had to be stretched on seperate angles.
How do I that?

We did alot of tests with halftones and stochastic dot structures through 43T and 62T screens across 20 – 30 different types of fabric. Each time we’d determine if the weave or knit of the fabric was yet another part of a conflicting matrix creating a moire or not.
There is a rule with film design and in general artists will play with this a little – ‘the rule of 45o’ I found the best result with a halftone was 45o for one or the most dominant colour and stochastic 18 – 25 (I’ve printed as low as 8) …. any finer and was hard to consistently reproduce ….. We’re all waterbased here.
