I am very new to screen printing, and I am getting supplies. What type of ink is best for using on 100% cotton tshirts. I have seen acrylic and water-based ones, and I definitely won't use plastisol inks because of the completcated process and high heat involved. Also, what type of transperencies should do I use? Just ones used for classroom overheads? Lastly, can photo emulsion be removed from a screen if I screw up burning it.
The list of stuff I will need:
110 Screen
Ink
Halogen Lamp
Transperencies
Photo emulsion
Squeegee
Glass
Scoop Coater

anything else anyone can think of?

Hey there,

You might just want to make your life very easy and consider purchasing the [url="http://www.jacquardproducts.com/products/kits/jacquardscreenkit/"]Jacquard Screen Ink Kit[/url]. Everything but the light source comes with (including a GREAT set of instructions) and it works great for fabric as well as many other surfaces.
As for removing the photo emulsion - it can be removed and you'll find full instructions with the kit.

If you are going to use water based inks make sure you use water based emulsion. If you need help getting this type of emulsion let me know. I can help with either solvent or water resistant direct apply emulsion's.
