Wendy Croxford (alanajane) | 3 comments Hi there,
Just saw this post and I thought I should provide some feedback. I have been using Permaset water-based ink for block printing. I find it works a treat and the colours are brilliant. It was originally developed for screen printing on fabrics, buy many people use it for linocuts. The only thing you need to remember with Permaset ink so to use a foam roller to apply the ink rather than a rubber brayer. Permaset is solvent free so it's perfect for use on homewares (like sheets, cushions etc which come into contact with skin) as well as children's clothes and even underwear and swimwear. And you can just cure it by ironing it once it is air dried. regards Wendy
