Mixed Media Art Questions for Milliande


Cannon inkjetprinter MP 600

Transperancie: 3M,CG 3460

When the image was transfered onto fabric(plain cotton) it turned out greenish.The original was in black/white.

Do you know what caused this change of colour?

Do i need a transperency from another company to solve problem with my printer CANNON MP 600?

Mixed Media Art Questions answered by Milliande
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~ I am not familiar with that particular printer... but I know that some transparencies and printout can leave a greenish tint from the residue of the ink tat has been used..

~ usually cheaper printers that use dye based inks have a colour cast on the images.. sometimes that can be adjusted with the settings in your photo editing program ..but more often than not..when using the image on a transperency or as a gel medium transfer... the inks that sit on top are first to transfer and can leave a greenish or bluish cast ...or a smudged black/grey one

~ you could try switching to a pigment based printer, the epson brand uses a particular brand of high qulaity inks that are pigment based and colorfast ...ie so colors wont fade easily

hope this helps

Inkjet Transparency Film
by: Unni Hoff

Thank you so much for your good advices with Inkjet transperancies.
I also wondered if i had to prepare the fabric for the printing with ink.So yesterday i soaked the cotton in Bubblejet to se if that could help the fabric to grab the ink.I could not see any difference,The print came out greenish this time as well.I also asked my printer for a highquality print.
Epson must be a great choise for my next printer to by!

Transparency setting?
by: Janeen Duer

At our school, we have had teachers with the same issues on a few occasions. Some printers require you to change the setting inside the printer properties area to tell it you are using a transparency.

I've never used a Cannon either, but if your printer has options like that, it might be able to help you get a better quality of transparency. Just write down any current settings first in case they don't automatically reset.
