AC-310 Silkscreen Medium is a thickening agent that, when added to Stroke & Coat®, Designer Liner or Underglazes, creates a "ceramic paste" that is suitable to be used in silk screen processes.
Prepare the Color Paste: Dispense a 1” 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.
For creating silkscreen design on clay or bisque:
Mix 4 parts UG or Stroke & Coats® to one part Silkscreen Medium.
Using a palette knife, thoroughly mix glaze and medium of a flat surface. Add small amounts of medium until mixture resembles thick paste.
Push material through silkscreen with a squeegee or finger.
Can be used with low fire and high fire glazes.
