  An extract from The Silk Screen Printing Process, 1938

The Silk Screen Printing Process, 1938By Jacob Israel Biegeleisen, E. J. Busenbark, Instructor at The School of Industrial Art, New York

158 MAKE-READY AND PRINTING METHODS

Imitation Frosting There are also several ways to make imitation frosting effects. Special lacquer pastes are sold for this purpose. Or, extender, with a small amount of varnish and drier added, may be used as a medium. Another medium is prepared by grinding an inert substance, such as whiting, asbestine, magnesium carbonate, or linolith, in a mortar with mixing varnish.

TEXTILE PRINTING IN COMMERCIAL WORK

Dyes

Application Chrome Colors These are used for printing on cotton and low-priced silks and are not very fast. Chrome colors are used only on light backgrounds. The dyestuff is cooked in water to a boil, then a quantity of thick gum tragacanth is added as a thickening agent.

Repitigen or Caustic Colors These colors are of recent development and are now used on perhaps 90 per cent of the materials used for draperies, handkerchiefs, tablecloths, etc. They are absolutely tub-fast and are very brilliant. Because of the caustic nature of these dyes, the life of the stencil is comparatively short.
