FX Suede Base

In stock
FX Speciality Inks NATURAL SUEDE BASE is specifically formulated to produce a soft, suede or velvet finish that is highly durable.


Use consistent, high-tensioned screen mesh and sharp edges squeegees for best print results. Recommended mesh counts can vary depending on particle size.

For best HD results, use open mesh counts with 200-400 micron capillary film and print-flash-print. Use a heavy flood to fully fill the open areas of the stencil with ink then print with medium squeegee pressure.

Best results when printed directly onto the fabric.

Tintable with plastisol colorants. See Pigment Loading section for suggested starting tinting percentages. Reduce the amount of white colorant in the formula as specialty base will lighten the color.

Adjusting cure temperature and dwell time will yield a variety of textured effects.

Cure between 340-350° F (170-175° C) and increase dwell time to assure cure and to achieve desired cracking effect.

After the print is cooled, "crack by hand" by stretching the printed area for a custom distressed look.
