Default Screenprint ink for diy dtg printer

I have a epson 1430 printer for my dtg, I have ordered a ciss system and I am going to use the photoshop method for separating my colors for the first couple of prints before I purchase a rip software. For the ink I've done some research and have found that dtg inks are water based inks. So, I figured to get around spending hundreds of dollars could I use speedball water base ink and water as a thinner. Use a viscosity cup to make it a very thin viscosity that will go through the holes in my printer? I've watched a YouTube video of someone doing it for a small spray nozzle and it worked fine.

Default Re: Screenprint ink for diy dtg printer

Is there an app out there that can take a photo and
separate colors and then calculate the amount of ink required to reproduce the image on a T-Shirt or any apparel object? Basically I want to know how much ink will be required for a manual print job.
