    You might have to double hit it to get it really, super opaque. Or maybe use a lower mesh count for the white. I've never really had any complaints with the way one pass of straight Speedball white looks over colored stock or other colors, though.

    Acrylic is the only Speedball screen printing ink I've used. Incidentally, stay away from the Speedball ink that says "Water Soluble."

    Also, welcome! If you're going to stick around, consider going premium. It's well worth it, and it helps keep the site afloat.

    You will not be happy with speedball white over black double hit. That's my guess since you have 21 years of plastisol opinions.
