    Default Question about Flourescent inks...

    Do they overprint the same generally?

    Like yelow over blue will make green?

    or doesn the flourescentness fuck it up somehow?

    From my experiance when you start mess with with overlapping floresents
    you lose the glow that floresents have. I would just do a small test on some scrap. just get a screen and block it out so you can print some squares and start overlapping them after the first color is dry and see what you get

    this poster has a bunch of florescent overprinting. it looks really weird and makes neat muted non-florescent colors.

    yeah you would get green, but not a super flo green. if you've ever seen the Stainboy Supergrass poster in person the green supergrass text is flo yellow over flo blue.

    Acrylic not "water-soluble"
    That shit's for "monoprints" or some art school crap...
