Printing on leather

Postby littlemonkey » Fri Aug 08, 2008 1:57 am

Hello -
I am new to screen printing and wanted to start printing on leather, I work with very soft supple leather and am wondering what sort of ink I would need to provide longevity, water fastness and also to stay with the leather as it moves and not crack or flake.
I have full graphic skills and so am able to do all the artwork but have always admired screen printing from afar as it something I have never done! I am very keen to get started and any advice would be gratefully received.
Thanks everyone.

Use a water based ink. We used to print knife sheeths and we used water based inks for the rough side of the sheeth.
