These water-based screen inks are colour-fast, light-fast and washable once they have been heat set. They can be used on a wide variety of natural and man-made fabrics. The inks can be mixed to create an infinite variety of colours.
NB Transparent inks are highly pigmented
When used full strength, transparent inks are bold, strong colours and some may appear quite dark (it depends on the design and the background you are printing on). For softer values, transparent extender base is a really useful addition as it makes the colours lighter and more transparent while maintaining the consistency of the ink. Click on the fern image (below main image) to see the effect of adding transparent extender base to the ink when used on white fabric (left side full strength, middle section 1:1, right side 1:3)
You can add any quantity of transparent extender base - small amounts will make the inks more economical with barely any change in value but you can also create delicate, sheer colours by increasing the ratio of transparent extender base to ink. These sheer colours can be built up in layers to create luminous and subtle fabric with great depth.
