What you'll need
System3 Screen Printing Acrylic
Daler-Rowney System3 Screen Printing Acrylic Paints, including Textile Screen Printing Acrylic, are highly pigmented and ready-to-use with excellent colour strength and lightfastness. The System3 Screen Printing Acrylic Inks have been developed to be ready for use straight from the pot, or thinned further with screen printing mediums.VIEW
System3 Screen Printing Medium
Daler-Rowney System3 Screen Printing Medium turns System3 Acrylic Paint into rich and vibrant screen printing inks which are perfect for use on paper, card and board. This water-soluble medium slows the drying time of acrylics, allowing them to be easily washed out of a screen.VIEW
System3 Textile Screen Printing Medium
Daler-Rowney System3 Textile Screen Printing Medium has been designed for screen printing on textiles and fabrics. When mixed with System3 Acrylic Paints, you will get printing inks which will retain the colour intensity of the original paint and should be expected to last for over 20 washes.VIEW
