Hello! New to the forum, long-time screen printer here. I'm wondering about Inktech's Satin Poster series. I've inherited a gigantic quantity of the stuff and it's been stashed away in storage for a few years; it's become quite thick (I remember when I first got it, it was pretty loose).
I know you're supposed to use their brand of thinner for extending/cleaning, but what terrible thing would happen if you just used paint thinner/varsol/turpentine or the like? Just curious. If anyone who has experience with this brand of solvent inks could give me some advice, I'd appreciate it.
For sure. I've definitely got proper thinner too, I'm just wondering about the cheaper options mostly out of curiosity, and because I have a project coming up where I'm thinking of using the inks for a purpose other than screenprinting and just wanted to do a bit deeper research than my small-batch tests with the varsol/paint thinner etc.
