Versatex Screen Printing Inks are specifically designed for silk screening, stenciling, and block printing. The colors are intermixable and can be thinned with water. Though heavily pigmented, Versatex will not change the texture or softness of your fabric and it will not wrinkle or bleed on paper. Versatex has a thick and creamy consistency and is ready to use. Its ease of application makes Versatex Printing Ink a desirable medium for all those interested in creating art on textiles. Also great for doing hand (or feet) printing (since it is totally non-toxic), and free hand painting. Versatex is the softest of our screen printing inks.

Versatex colors are non-toxic, somewhat transparent, and work best on light fabric. These semi-transparent inks are most luminous on light colored fabrics. Colors are deepest when applied at packaged strength and become permanent when heat set properly.

Versatex is made permanent to washing by heatsetting with an iron on the hottest cotton setting at least 20-30 seconds per square foot.  It can also be set in a conveyor type oven at 350º for 3 minutes.  Even easier (and softer!), mix with the No Heat Fixative below right before using for permanent results! When used this way, you almost can't feel that it is there!


 Versatex "No Heat" Fixative makes your paints lightfast and washfast without heat setting. 

 Versatex Printing Ink Extender is used to create pastels and transluscent overlays.

I just took a workshop...the teacher had recommended this product. The inks were so very thick that they had to be thinned for the silk screening to take place. Neither she or myself were pleased with the product.

What was really great about these is how soft they are on fabric even though they are thick printing inks. Had no problems screening with them at all right out of the bottle. Still soft when I block printed with them which puts on more paint. The No Heat Fixative worked great and the paints were even softer than when heat set! Love love love
