You can use fabric inks on paper as long as they are not too 'wet'. Generally that means a lot of base was added to them to make them transparent. Opaque and medium opaque ones can work but the paper should be at least 80 lb. My recommendation is that you use acrylic ink and wall paper paste. It works perfectly for paper! and the paste is so cheap!

What sort of acrylic ink exactly?  I take it you're not referring to this sort of stuff http://www.dickblick.com/products/fw-acrylic-water-resistant-artists-ink/

No, i guess i meant acrylic paint not acrylic ink- and any kind will do but you'll of course get better results with higher quality paint than student grade stuff.

Cesar Milan! Wow!  The bag and print look great!  Did you work from a posterized photo or do the color levels yourself?

I find that using the posterizing filter in Photoshop produces mediocre results at best. It's much nicer to just illustrate the image from scratch. That way you can decide how many colours you want to have in the image. I usually never print more than four colour screens- this one may have been five- I don't remember. Smiley

These are great. I love the gears on the laptop!
I just made a sparkly name decal for my friends laptop!
It's made with regular silkscreen ink screened onto con-tac paper with a hand cut stencil then sprinkled with sparkles while wet then when it's all dry cut it out with a craft knife. You can cut it close to the image or leave a 1/4" edge around it.

They are ridiculously sweet! I love them as ornaments! An entire tree of sea creatures like that would be fun!

Thanks- it was the first time i made a bag for a man- so I hoped it was a bit more manly than most of my stuff. Smiley

Ok- so I love my animals- and everyone else's too. I make custom handbags and portraits- mostly all of animals. I just finished one that I really happy with- it's of my favorite dog 'Daddy' who is owned by Cesar Millan.  It was my first project for a celebrity client so I was a bit nervous. And it was the first time i made leather handles. So here's Daddy in his most famous pose.

Are you using water-based inks? If you are, I've used fabric waterbased inks on paper and had no problem at all.
Actually- I've experimented and some are good and some aren't but for sure Permaset brand works on both.
