Printing Gel is used in silk screen printing with Derivan acrylics.
Both Derivan Student and Derivan Acrylic can be mixed with Derivan Printing Gel to keep the colours from drying and clogging the screen mesh. Using this medium, many prints can be made at one time without having to clean the mesh between every print. Screen printing can be done on paper, board or fabric. For fabric printing such as on to clothes, use Derivan Fabric Fixative in conjunction with the acrylic colours.
Printing Gel is also used to reduce colour strength when transparent colours are required for printing. Mix the Printing Gel into the colour until desired transparency is reached.
Printing Gel is also an excellent inexpensive craft glue for paper.
