jaybendt No mom. For the last time, I wasn't the one who spilled a bunch of water. It was your husband, I swear. 5d

jaybendt "It's not much, but it's home." - been here for almost 4 months. Pictures still haven't been hung up. A lot of the decor is handmade. I wouldn't have it any other way! Plus, being a newbie homeowner is expensive. Why is it so hard to find home decor pieces that are also somewhat affordable? 1w

jaybendt Have a whole jar of this stuff and trying to figure out what to do with it. I hear people use it for linocuts. Anyone tried it that way? 2w
  •   navrix Linolio 2w
  •   ajnordin Screen printing ink is less viscous, than Lino ink. It won't stick to a linocut. Get a screen and try drawing fluid techniques or just drawing with it 2w
  •   jaybendt @ajnordin I know. This is a much more viscous ink. Has a lot more of the consistency of a regular etching ink than water based screenprinting ink, which is why I asked. I spent my time as a printing major mostly using etching inks for linocuts and speedball or plastisol for screenprinting, but it seems a lot of people recommend this one for linocuts with a good brayer. 2w
  •   wildfrancesca I love using it on linos for printing on fabric. I use a cheap squishy brayer to keep it from sliding off the lino. 2w
  •   jaybendt @wildfrancesca fantastic. I have a great brayer so I'll use that! Do you set yours with heat like plastisol or let it air dry? I've used this on paper, never fabric. 1w
  •   wildfrancesca Never used Jaquard brand but usually I let it air dry and then heat set either with a minute of ironing in both sides or 10ish mins in the dryer on high. It won't have the same effect as on paper obviously because of the thickness but I have fun playing with it and mixing linos with stenciling (which this stuff is great for). It's awesome too for mixed media quilting, sewing other elements on around the fabric and then turning it into a pillow sham, zipper case or just something to hang on the wall! Have fun and post a pic!! :) 1w
  •   wildfrancesca Also let me know what kind of brayer you have the best luck with. My stiff ink brayer is crap with fabric printing so I use a cheap foam one and it does better. 1w
  •   wildfrancesca Btw is it oil or water-based? Water based needs to be mixed with a fabric ink additive, oil should be fine. 1w

jaybendt The not so fun part of making things and trying to make a living off of it. The IRS website has become my best friend. For those of you out there making things, though, I seriously recommend waveapps for keeping track of your income/expenses and tidy up your receipts. #business #thisislife 2w
