These Versatex gallons have been here for some time. They may be cottage cheesy, they won't work as printing inks well, but at these low prices i am sure a use can be found! Let the kids finger paint, throw it on canvas for abstract art, paint fabric with it! Use it up so it doesn't get tossed in the landfill.
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. It is used by professional printers because of its strength of color and its permanency. 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 intermixable, water soluble, non-toxic, somewhat transparent, and work best on light fabric. These semi-transparent inks are most luminous on light colored fabrics. Beautiful transparent overlays can be achieved with the use of the Clear Extender. Mix colors with white for opaque pastels. Overlapping pastels yields new shades. Vesatex will effectively print over light tones but will not hide dark tones unless you are using the metallics or mixing with opaque white. 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!
