Using a CB-110 #10/0 Liner, apply slightly thinned SW-301 Iron Wash over the design area (white area), the ink from the printer should resist the SW-301 Iron Wash, if it doesn’t add a little more water to your brush. Too much water will result in light transfer. Do not pre mix the water with the SW-301 Iron Wash. Allow to completely dry.
