    Default Printing on wood w/ Stain

    Sorry if this has been asked before. I performed a search and there were a kazillion results. Anyone ever printed on wood with stain? I mentioned this to my dad, who is into woodworking, and his ears perked. Could lead to something cool. Wood stain is really watery, and I could see that as being a problem. Any suggestions for thickening it up a bit?

    I've never done it, but thinking logically, the properties of stain are to soak into the wood and bleed a maximum amount to crate a uniform finish. I'd imagine this would spread far enough to kill any type and crisp images.

    But you know, it's worth a shot. Might have a nice effect for a base layer to build colors on top of.

    I don't know about printing stain (because of how watery it is, you would need to use fine mesh) but we have done a lot of printing on boxes with WB and solvent based inks. for the stain effect, you can make up a clear, with slight bits of colour in it. Here are some samples.

    any wood printing, you want to sand the surface, and put a seal coat down first, otherwise the ink will soak in unevenly.

    Thanks for the help. I suppose I'll test printing on a scrap piece of wood with an old screen if he decides he's interested in doing this. I'll post the results if I do.
