Oil Intaglio Ink

Over the weekend, I experimented with the oil-based ink to print onto the fabrics samples. I came to realise that even with the much more professional ink, it was still a bit difficult to see for some background images. The white cotton fabric had a better print image than the calico fabric.


I had also tried a brighter colour (yellow) with a more filled-up background, thinking that the colour would be bold and stand out from it. But it did not go as I thought it would, the colour absorbed int the fabric, giving it a very faded look.

I think I am going to try with black ink, to compare if it will be a better colour than the two experimented above.
