Any suggestions for screening orange onto a black t-shirt? I've tried a few different brand inks (speedball, yudu, and Simply Screen) and all are showing the black through the orange. I tried a white base first, but this is a tremendous amount of work and I'm afraid to move my shirt to dry from the machine because I don't want the image to shift and cause a shadow effect. Therefore its taking hours to complete one shirt. I've use gold on black with no problem and even plain white one black without a problem. Me and this orange are not getting along. HELP!!!!

Some colors just aren't happy on black. Orange nad red and re two of them. Unless you are using plastisol inks nad they are hard to work with only because of the curing process. My suggestion is that if oyu are doing one or two shirts... and if you have a cutting machine... Heat transfer vinyl is your best bet. The other option is what I've done in the past is to mix Super Opaque white ink with the color I want. You may have to play mixmaster to get the color you want ( adding red and yellow as needed). I use Jaquard Inks and am very pleased with my results. They make some great opaque inks.

Hmmm...I'm just curious, would using a lower mesh screen help? All other things being equal more ink would come through the screen. I imagine that there is a tipping point because if the ink is watery or if too much comes through, it would just get messy on a detailed project. The screens that ship with the Yudu are 110. THey make a 220 for paper and then a 70 for their glitter. Might the 70 help? I have not tried this I'm just curious.
Best success!
