    Default Speedball Ink questions...

    OK - so we wanted to go with the TW 5500 series (since it sounds like it is a better ink)... but we dont have that much cash yet, so we figured our next best bet to start a pretty colorful collection - was Speedball.
    Through my research on here I have found that www.allartsupplies.com has the best pricing... but my question is..

    Speedball Waterbased Textile vs. Speedball Permanent Acrylic?
    Whats the difference... what does everyone use?

    It's soap & water clean-up.
    They have a separate line called Water-Soluble that will run
    if/when it gets wet.

    What emulsion do you suggest using with the Acrylic series?? We need to buy emulsion anyhow so we might as well buy the right stuff.

    yep. no one in this town seems to carry it, and if they did, i'm sure they would charge me more than dickblick.

    heres what i use:

    http://www.herwecks.com/imagemate/im...0emulsions.htm

    the PC 701. works with everything oil, water, plastisol, eventhough peeps will say different, i trust / use it. I've used it since i started screen printing my posters and will use no other. Ive tried ulano stuff but have had several breakdowns due to it, plus you gotta mix stuff. nothing compares to the PC 701. word is bond.
