INK for Fine art prints on CANVAS

Posted on Wed, 22 Mar 2006 at 11:57



Anybody kindly advice the right ink for printing on Canvas to print Fine Art re-printing.
Solvent or Oil based?
Which fabric count ?
I printed with solvent glossy ink, on a 3/4th auto Flatbed 72x48 inch, but ink is not penetrating to the vallys of Canvass.

Whats wrong ? Ink ? Fabric or both ?
Whats the remedy?

Thanks a lot for your advice.

Get canvas that has been sized/coated.

Select canvas with a tight weave

I used both waterbased and solvent based to good effect

230 mesh, double coat stencil

Soft 70 duro squeegee

Sometimes a double hit is required

hope that helps a bit.

I worked at a shop in SF,Ca that printed lots of flat stock canvas. We used plastisol inks. Depending on the texture of the fabric we would use meshes from 195 to 110. On course canvas I would use 156 or better a 110. If the canvis is very course and the image has lots of fine detail I would lay a base coat of white of clear to print over.
