Block Printing Ink

Permaset Aqua is also popular for block printing onto fabrics. It is widely used with lino, wood and ezy-carve rubber blocks.  Generally one would use a brayer (hard rubber roller) to spread the ink out onto blocks, however when using Permaset Aqua (which is a water-based ink) you need to use a soft sponge roller to spread the ink.  Permaset tends to dry quickly so you need to work quickly when printing.  The ink is intensely coloured, so some people choose to cut the strength back by mixing with Print Paste/Extender (essentially clear ink), or Permaset White ink, which is available from our online Permaset shop or retail stockists. If you follow these directions when block printing, you'll experience the superior technical performance of Permaset as a textile ink; soft handle, brilliant colours, excellent wash and dry clean resistance (after heat curing).
