Speedball Screen Drawing Fluid
For use in the Drawing Fluid & Screen Filler Screen Print Method (Tusche – resist or “positive method”)
The direct block-out or “Negative Method” using Screen Filler is a simple means of preparing a screen for printing. Drawing fluid is painted onto the screen in the desired pattern or image, creating a resist where printmaking ink will not print through the screen. Once dry, Screen Filler can be applied around the drawing fluid to block out large areas of the screen that you do not wish to print. This allows screen printing ink to be forced through the screen wherever it has not been applied.
Clean up – removal:
Speedball Speed Clean is preferable for removing drawing fluid and screen filler. However, you may also use One (1) cup of Arm & Hammer’s Washing Soda dissolved in one (1) gallon of water is also suitable.
Apply your design to both sides of your screen with a paintbrush. Scrub with a nylon bristle brush.
Apply again on both sides of the screen. Let stand in a horizontal position for three to five minutes.
Scrub with a nylon bristle brush while spraying with a forceful stream of hot water.
