Can I print on polished marble?

Postby Indiana.Matt » Wed Jul 18, 2012 10:12 am

I am new to screen printing, but would like to use the technique to restore antique clock dials. I have a large, polished marble clock dial that needs all new numbers and chapter rings. I would like to screen print them onto the marble. Is it possible to print on marble? and is there any special ink I need for it? Black would be the color. The clock is inside a courthouse.

Thanks,
Indiana.Matt

You might try Enthone 50 Series Cat-L-Ink. They make an air cure catalist for this series of ink and any color you want.

Good Luck

Try asking the folks at Nazdar what they recommend. I am thinking a multipurpose with catalyst would do it. You may or may not need to wipe marble with solvent first to remove polishing agents.
