    Default 4 color process inks

    I am going to try to do a 4 color process print for my next poster, and I was hoping for some suggestions on process inks?

    You can actually buy a speedball kit for short dough that includes the four inks for process screen printing. I think I got mine at Utrecht on Wickenden for about $11.

    It's a good place to start.

    speedball makes process inks, just add transparent base to the black.

    yeah the speedball process inks are a good place to start. get some extender base to thin out the colors without making them runny.

    cool, thanks for the tips. I use speedball for everything else, i just thought maybe nazdar or wilflex might be a better choice. On a side note, has anyone ever used waterbased inks from victory factory?

    Why?

    Does this have something to do with 80 grit sandpaper?

    the few process prints I have done I found that the speedball Cyan is way too dark and the cyan and black are very runny to begin with. I ended up going to Home depot with pantone swatches and had them mix up a batch of latex of magenta and cyan for me, worked like a charm.
