Opaque water based ink for textile printing. Ready to use. Ecological.

This is a water based textile ink for direct printing on light and dark fabrics, ready-to-wear or pre-cut articles. Suitable for cotton, jersey, Lycra and other natural and synthetic fabrics like polyester. This ink has a very long drying time but traditional methods for water based ink printing are recommended. It has a very smooth yet pasty consistency much like frosting. It will not run on the screen when it is in the up position. Working with this ink compares to working with plastisol inks due to its thickness and long evaporative drying times.
