    Serigraphs are nothing but the silkscreen prints. In Photoshop, serigraphs means creating the silkscreen prints in the photographs.

    To create serigraphs in photoshop -

    You can start with a simple head shot with a plain background. If the background is too busy, feel free to remove the background with a layer mask. Desaturate the image with the Channel Mixer (Image > Adjustments >Channel Mixer). Set the Mixer to Monochrome, and move the Red, Green and Blue sliders until you have a well-balanced image with decent contrast.

    Next, go to Filter > Sketch > Stamp. The Stamp filter creates a high -contrast image (like a rubber stamp). Aim for an effect that gives you enough detail to recognize the face.

    Note - At this point, no matter how good the Stamp filter works, you’ll still have some areas you’ll want to paint in with black or white.

    Add a new layer on top, and name it Changes. Grab a Hard Round 19 pixel brush, and set your color palette to the default black and white by typing the letter D.

    If you’re using a Wacom pen, set the brush to react to pressure with size by going to the Brushes palette, selecting Shape Dynamics and setting the Control to Pen Pressure. With these settings, a firm stroke will give you a fat brush; a lighter touch lets you paint with a thin brush.

    Next, double-click on the top layer, re-name it Black and set the layer’s blending mode to Multiply. Put a new layer underneath it, and name it Color, and fill it with a bright color.

    optional - you can paint on the bolor layer behind the face with a contrasting color. copy and paste the layers, change the colors, etc
