Professional Silk Screen Medium

Liquitex Silkscreen Medium transforms water-based acrylic color into printing ink with the ideal consistency for screen and monoprinting. Mix into your paint to extend its drying time - giving you longer for print application and positioning – and give greater flow and fluidity - allowing for finer print detail. Liquitex Silkscreen Medium will keep the opacity of your color the same and extend its volume further. The result? Color-rich even prints with archival permanence.

Other creatives have asked us...

If I use Silkscreen Medium on fabric, does it need to be heat set?

Silkscreen Medium is only for extending the drying time of the acrylic paint being used with it. We would suggest using Fabric Medium with it as this medium is intended specifically for fabric. It does not require heat setting.
