What is emulation?

Emulation is a process which recreates digital art so that it will remain an artwork even though the technology which created it may have become obsolete. Art made with the earliest cameras, software and computers is conserved by emulating artworks using newer, existing technology.

Silkscreen

Silkscreen is a method for making prints using a screen made of silk or some other mesh fabric. The screen is prepared with a substance which only allows the ink forced through it to print in selected areas. Each color used needs a separate screen.

Tempera

Tempera is a paint traditionally made with colored pigments and egg yolks. The paint dries quickly and lasts a very long time. Some examples still remain from 100 AD. Modern tempera paint uses glue size with the colored pigments instead of egg yolks.

Glass

Glass is a transparent solid. It varies in composition based on the type of glass. Artists use these variants to create art glass, including stained, blown, and a myriad of decorated forms. Glass can be cut, textured, surfaced with overlays, and engraved.
