I am printing on unprimed sanded wood with enamel that i have thinned out with the varnish. The issue is that the ink seems to start thickening after 2 uses and clogging the screen. The ink is a couple years old and i'm not sure if that is an issue also. Anyone have a similar experience?
The 59000 series has 5 numbers in their names. Are you using 59122? What do you mean by thinned out with varnish? What kind of varnish? If it's stored in a metal (not plastic) container it should last a long time. What does 2 uses mean? Do you mean 2 pulls of the squeegee? What mesh count are you using?
This is a super easy ink to use and if it's clogging your screen something you are doing is wrong.
thanks, 2 uses is 2 pulls, the varnish is the thinning varnish and i added mineral spirits as well. and i do think its the wood/dust that is the culprit. i used an air compressor to get rid of the dust but it doesn't get it all. i switched to acrylic for the wood part but will be using the enamel for the pvc pieces i need to print as well. hopefully that goes well. i am an experienced printer but enamel is new to me. thanks again
