Fastex textile ink screen printing
|Textile Printing Ink|

These are acrylic paints that have a medium mixed with the paint to make it suitable for fabric. This can work reasonably well but they are still a paint that has been redirected to work on fabrics.
A good printing ink once applied should not only look good with strong solid colours but you should not be able to feel it on the fabric no matter how many layers you have printed.

2. Simple stencil.

- You may need to clean between colours but more than often you can do a run of fabric prints this way.
