anonapersona, yes, no problem. However the second screen should be rotated (cut and placed) at a ~45 degree angle relative to the first. Likewise, if a third screen is used it should be rotated ~15 degrees (relative to the first).
This is necessary in order to moderate the severe interference (moire) patterns that occur when regular, repeating geometric patterns are overlaid. If two (or more) screens with identical angles are stacked, the combination would exhibit a kind of "in-phase, out-of-phase" behavior that would make final positioning a critical and impractical exercise.
