Need Help Printing on Leather

Postby misslina » Sun Apr 19, 2015 12:16 pm


I'm a newbie in the art of screen printing. I wanted to screen print on leather and tried it but stumbled on issues. I couldn't figure out what's wrong with it because i have very little experience. Could anyone guide me on this by looking at my pictures.

My question is, why isn't the ink register completely onto the leather. Was my ink too liquid or too creamy? Or am I using a wrong kind of ink (I'm using a polycoat PVC oil based ink)? Or did I not run through it well? Or was the screen I used is wrong (I used thread count 120)?

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
