Today I am ashamed. Usually I am an eco conscience modernist hippie who prints with water based inks. Today I am a polluting bastard as I printed with oil paints(not inks). I have been printing on canvas lately and just wasn't getting enough application and vivid prints with the waterbased Matsui so went down to the local art pub and scored a nice tube of Van Gogh black oil paint. Forgive me father for I have sinned.
Let me tell you, I finally got the coverage I have been looking for. Perhaps there is plastisol in my future.
The only gripe I have is trying to get the screen clean afterwards. I had some mineral spirits laying around and they did decent, but my hands are now engulfed in black paint stains. A second gripe is the drying time of the paint. It takes a good day or two for the color to be dry enough to print the second screen on.
Any fellow oil paint printers out there who could recommend some tips it would be appreciated.
