Preparation of printing ink for fabrics

fabric paintPaint for fabrics made of vegetable fibers. 20 g of direct cotton dye, rub into a paste with a little hot water, dissolve in 350 cm3 of hot water, add 20 g of urea, pour into 600 g mixed thickener and add 10 g disodium phosphate. Mix very carefully. The viscosity of the paint should be this, so that the paint does not leak under its own weight through the mesh, but it was able to squeeze without difficulty when sliding a strip of elastic rubber over it. This should be tested experimentally on a piece of the same milling gauze, which was used to create the template. Thin with water, thicken with an increased amount of thickener.

Natural silk paint. 20…40 g of acid dye, 100 g of urea, 200 cm3 of water, 20 g of ammonium sulphate dissolve and pour into 600 g of tragant thickener. Mix thoroughly.

Stylon paint. 20 g of acid dye, 60 g of thiourea, 30 g of phenol, 350 cm3 of water, 30 g of ammonium sulphate dissolve and pour into 485 g of tragant thickener. Mix thoroughly.
