Which ink do you plan on using?
Thank you Joe.If coverage is going to be an issue, I would user a lower count mesh.
A big THANK you for your post!I used to paint with acrylics and have silkscreened with them also. I'd recommend screening with the same type of paint originally used on the canvas to make sure you don't have an adhesion problem years down the road. Golden and Liquitex are great acrylics. Just add some medium to open the working time. Using acrylics also lets the painter go in at a later date and layer on top of what you screen without any problems
Assuming kla10 and I are thinking of the same thing, medium is also sometimes called extender, base, base extender, etc.What do you mean with "Just add some medium to open the working time"?Some medium quantity of acrylic?(sorry I am not english mother-tongue)
I'm not the original poster, but I print the same way - and no, no problems with washout.Did you have any problem washing the screen after using that kind of acrylics?
Thank you very much Solmu!Assuming kla10 and I are thinking of the same thing, medium is also sometimes called extender, base, base extender, etc.
Basically it's an ink without pigment in it. You can mix acrylic paint in with it, and it makes it screenprintable. So it's a specific product intended to allow you to screenprint on paper.
Let's see pics.Thank you to all for the information provided....PAINT WELL DONE in Andy Warhol style!
I used a 77 threads mesh and it worked out great
I do not have them, I have only the picture screen-printed to a coloured face in the canvas.Let's see pics.
