Tri-Art's Silk Screening Base is a water-based product designed to adapt acrylic colours to the silk screening process. It is also an excellent base for block printing. This product is designed for use on paper and other fine-art supports but is not suitable for silk screening on clothing. This medium significantly retards the drying process of acrylics facilitating the cleaning of the screen. The gel-like consistency of the medium produces a crisp print with no bleeding. Combine with acrylic colours at a 1:1 ratio. Clean silk screen and tools with soap and water. To remove stubborn dried paint, soak the screen in warm water for a few hours then scrub away the remaining paint.
