Colors bleeding

Postby PamelaB » Fri Mar 08, 2019 8:44 am

I am finding that when I use white, any adjacent color bleeds into it. Is there a solution for this?

Hello. Some colors are higher tinting than others (depending on the type/brand you are using, it may give you some indication on the container); these are the colors to watch for. Adding a bit of distilled water may help. If it is acrylic, you could try adding a bit of clear acrylic medium or even a touch of titanium white (this will slightly change the tone of the color). If the "bleeding" is happening after you lift the print off the size, it may be an alum issue (too much or too little), the type of paper or fabric, or too much/too little rinsing.

I don't visit this forum very often. If you have further questions or would like to continue the conversation, feel free to email me at (see contact info below).
