Deka Block Printing Inks
15 ml tubes of Deka Block Printing Ink. These oil based inks are suitable for use on fabric and paper. The inks are washable, lightfast and suitable for use on light to medium coloured fabrics. Evenly cover a brayer with ink from a tray and then apply to a prepared block. Place the block firmly and evenly on the fabric to achieve a clean image and press down to transfer the ink onto the fabric. Put a weight, such as a book, on the block to help ink to transfer.
If using on fabric, leave for several days for the fabric to dry before doing anything with it and then iron on reverse to set the ink. Put tissue or brown paper underneath to protect the ironing board. It is necessary to allow 4-6 weeks to elapse before washing the fabric for the first time, ensuring the ink has fully cured. Wash with a mild detergent and handle gently. Dry cleaning is not recommended.
