up until now, all of the screen printing i have done has been on textiles and has only been one color. this print was done on bfk paper and has a total of 4 colors. the colors are fairly vibrant but im not sure if the two shades of orange are distinguishable. anyway thanks for looking.  Smiley



image is about 18" long and 14" wide

Beautiful! Can you use regular silk-screening inks or do you have to do anything special? I'm thinking Christmas cards...

you can use regular silkscreen inks. you only have to use different inks for textiles.

What are the different inks for textiles? I thought silkscreen inks were for textiles. But, I'm just learning about the process, so I don't know too much! Wink

Can you recommend a good source for inks?
