Simply mix the C3’s with the appropriate nonphthalate base (see Bases on next page). Printing on White Garments: Mix per formulation or custom blend to achieve brilliant colors on 100% cotton whites. For extremely soft-hand prints, mix finished color (C3 plus base) with up to 1:1 with Claira NPT Chino Base Printing on Dark Garments or over an underlay: When printing on dark garments, mix per formulation or custom blend to achieve brilliant colors over an underlay .

Claira Colors™, bases, modifiers and additives should be mixed in clean vessels using clean mixer blades and utensils. Any contamination from other ink sources or non-approved additives could make Claira Colors™ test positive for the restricted phthalates. Do not dry clean, bleach, or iron the printed image. Note to 100% Cotton users: With low bleed ink, 100% cotton could produce a ghost image. Claira NPT Low Bleed White is a low-bleed ink and should be tested for ghosting before printing on 100% cotton. Claira NPT Low Bleed White is not recommended for 100% polyester. Use Claira NPT Barrier under base for 100% polyester.
