    Default Color Overlapping

    ok, so im doing my first 4 color screenprint-black, red, yellow, blue.
    im trying to get orange and green in there too....
    is there any particular order i should do these?
    i thought that maybe it should go blue red yellow....but im not sure if that really makes a difference.
    im planning on using normal latex house paint with some floetrol,
    which ive never used either....will that work?
    any suggestions and tips are much appreciated

    thanks!

    i have never printed with house paint so i don't know the opacity of it. usually in screen printing you work from the lightest to color to the darkest. there are exceptions to this rule all the time depending on the art or the look you might be trying to achieve. but just kind of a standard practice.

    i posted this on your other post but...

    house paint won't overprint. It's too opaque. You're much better off buying some speedball ink and some extender base.
