Tony thanks for the reply and info I didn't have time yesterday to make a detailed post.  I've wondered and thought it would be possible to use pigmented discharge inks.  How do you mix them if you don't mind me asking?  What white ink are you using, plastisol, wb, or discharge?  I like the addition of wb black for the no-feel aspect, I'd love to see pics.  If you want to email them to me I can host/post them for you

Preston, which white ink are you using and printing wet on wet?  I didn't try wet on wet before giving up, it didn't occur to me until after I'd started the switchover to discharge.

QCM, It took some practice to get an even layer of runny "ink" on the shirts and it sometimes looked uneven when I lifted the screen, but by the time I had spun around the other 3 stations, the ink had darkened and sunken into the shirt.  Have to pay attention though as I'm printing through the colors, it's hard to tell if you've printed the black screen if you lose count near the end of a WYMCK print lol

Killer, The shirts were all G2000 Blue Dusk and Dark Chocolate.  305 screens, 55lpi, think quickseps sets the angles at 56degrees ellipse dot on a 6/4 Antec legend press.

Tonypep's print he sent over:

Sepped as CMYK. Eliminated cyan and black. Used discharge cream and burnt orange in place of yellow and magenta. Spot colors for white and red. 4 screens total.
And another:
True sim process discharge. Shirt printed April 2004. 2 spots 9 halftones....colors hand formulated. 305s for these (no underbase or spot white) Photo is a bit blurry but you can begin to see how well the dots blend.

Since the forum software is set to a max width of 800px for images I blew this one up so everyone can see Tony's detail.  Pretty damn nice!  How long does it take to get a job like this set up?  Running shirts in the thousands for something like this, right?

Hey Tony sorry I just got on today and did not get your looks awesome!!! I love printing on dark colors just about everyone can do light colors, but dark that's the monster to tame.

I live for the smell of ink in the morning!

Oh BTW for those who are interested the Bachanal Ball print was for Carnival on St. Thomas 2009. The woman who won the contest re-painted the image on pre-primed black canvas at my request so that we could separate for black shirt
