AC-310 Silkscreen Medium is a thickening agent that, when added to Stroke & Coat®, Designer Liner or Underglazes, creates a “ceramic paste” that is suitable to be used in silk screen processes.

Available Sizes

4 oz wide-mouth jar, contains 75 grams of dry material.

Application Recommendations

Prepare the Color Paste: Dispense a 1” wide dollop of glaze onto a plate or palette. Sprinkle a pinch of AC-310 Silk Screen Medium over the glaze and allow to sit for 10-15 seconds. Mix together using a palette knife until the mixture is smooth and contains no lumps. If mixture is still too thin, sparingly add a bit more Silk Screen Medium to thicken; if the mixture is too thick add a small amount of glaze. Remix and adjust as needed. The final consistency should be similar to smooth peanut butter.

Usage Variations and FAQ’S

Color: the base firing properties of the glaze used to create the ceramic paste remain unchanged: cone 06, cone 6 glazes perform just as they would in a non-paste state.  For the deepest color we recommend using Stroke & Coat®, Designer Liner or Mayco Underglaze – products that contain high pigment content. Darker colors will produce deeper color in the fired result. Use of other color lines and/or light pigment colors (pinks, tans, light yellow, etc.) may yield less prominent results.

Viscocity: if a paste is too thin your design may bleed.  As a general rule: the more detailed the screen design the thicker the paste.  For patterns, such as Chevrons and Stripes, you may find a thinner pastes works best.

This is such a great place if you are a starving artist who is a clay addict! The employees are so helpful and Marcie and Quinn are great! I love how they have their own line of glazes and clays to choose from. I favor their Whitestone stoneware. It is a finely compounded stoneware with a porcelain appearance and feel, great for throwing on the potters wheel... Y'all should visit this store if you love exceptional quality materials and customer service. Five stars all day!
