Has anyone ever used this stuff for an overprint varnish? I could do with varnishing something to stop it scuffing. It says on the site it can be used for screen printing but I have visions of it perma clogging my screen.
Yeah maybe I'd best leave this one alone. I've got a choice of speedball black or system 3 process black. I know that speedball black gets pretty chalky, but don't have any experience of the system 3 yet.
The only reason I'm considering it is because it's a record sleeve, printed on grey card. So it would be good if it could hold up to being handled a bit more than a poster.
Blocking is something I can definitely do without.
That's good to hear. It's definitely much cheaper & readily available than speedball in the UK too. The fluorescent colours and pearlescent tint look interesting. Everyone online seems to use speedball though.
I tried some the other night and thought I had drying out problems, but I'm pretty sure it was something else in my setup that was doing that. What kind of ratio of the medium do you typically use for it? I think I went a bit overboard as I thought the consistency was a bit off, was a bit thick, but maybe I made it worse. Can you use the speedball retarder if it is drying fast, or is it best to add more medium? Going to try out the black tonight I think.
