Do you mean putting white ink under your print to give it a bit of punch? Underbase or flash, it's called.

No. I wanted to know if I can use Rutland's MH cotton white and M2 as underlay(underbase). Or is there an additive for that? Do I need to coatt a layer first before I apply Rutland M2 colour?
I have read somewhere that a Underlay (underbase) should be applied first before applying the top coat.
