Step 7: Mixing Ink.
Too dry, and the ink will dry up in the screen in between passes.
Too wet, and the ink will run through the screen and ruin our substrates.
It will probably take some time to get the perfect consistency, be patient.
Here in the very dry desert, I mix about 1 part retarder for 10 parts paint.
Dark colors printed on light colors work best for this method because there is only one opportunity to pull the prints before moving the screen, and no way to layer lighter colored inks.
Everything is ready.....
