This was a great post! read the entire thing. I'm bias here as well as I started my business 4 months ago and never have used plastisol. To me the tipping factor was the ability to clean everything with just water. dealing with all the chemicals of plastisol was a big deterrent for me. I have done dark garments with Comet White and gotten away with 2 passes no flash most of the time on 200 count screens. It really looks better if you do pass/flash/pass but for faded looks and most underbase, one good hit is good enough.

Load more ink in your screen but first ensure that you have mixed the ink until it is nice and creamy then load ink and flood the screen with ink covering the design, do your stroke no off contact with water based and flood again always keeping the design in the screen covered with ink.
Hood says to 'Fill' the screen, not flood it, on thick white ink. That means do a heavy pull with the screen off the shirt......Then he just does one push and it comes out pretty good. Using this ink at present.....it is a challenge .....also need have a thick stencil on the screen to make room for the ink..

That is for Plastisol, which sits on top of the fabric. Waterbase goes into the fabric, so all that "thick gasket" blather goes out the window. For opaque waterbase, the first hit partially absorbs into the surface; flash that, then build more opacity over it. If you managed to put a huge load of white waterbase on in one stroke, it is likely to go all the way through the shirt.

This ole thread inspired me to go play with Comet White, i needed add a good bit of water to get it printable. As it was like marshmellow fluff it instantly clogs screens. Has to be thinned down in my case. I like Matsui stretch White myself. P/F/P and the feel is very soft and stretchable with no cracking ever.
