This is a special Silkscreen Medium used as a thickening agent.  When added to Stroke & Coat®, Designer Liner or Underglazes, it will create a "ceramic paste" that works perfectly in the silk screen processes.
 

Application Recommendations

Prepare the Colour Paste: Dispense a 3cm wide dollop of glaze onto a plate or palette. Sprinkle a pinch of AC-310 Silk Screen Medium over the glaze and allow to sit for 10-15 seconds. Mix together using a palette knife until the mixture is smooth and contains no lumps. If mixture is still too thin, sparingly add a bit more Silk Screen Medium to thicken; if mixture is too thick add a small amount of glaze. Remix and adjust as needed. The final consistency should be similar to a smooth peanut butter.

Usage Variations and FAQ’S

Colour: the base firing properties of the glaze used to create the ceramic paste will remain unchanged: cone 06, cone 6 glazes perform just as they would in a non-paste state.  For the deepest colour we recommend using Stroke & Coat®, Designer Liner or Mayco Underglaze – products that contain high pigment content. Darker colours will produce deeper colour in the fired result. Use of other colour lines and/or light pigment colours (pinks, tans, light yellow, etc.) may yield less prominent results.

 

Viscosity: if a paste is too thin your design may bleed.  As a general rule: the more detailed the screen design the thicker the paste.  For patterns, such as Chevrons and Stripes, you may find a thinner pastes works best.
