Hi
I am looking at making some natural screen printing inks and I was just wondering if anybody had any tips or knew of any books or sources of information on it?
So far I have used red cabbage dye, onion skin dye and coffee dye thickened with indalca powder, with cream of tartar and alum as mordants, but I want to know more on how to make sure the inks will be colourfast and lightfast (the first 2 washed out, when I put them on a low wash).
Any help would be really appreciated!!
