Making Labels using Ink Jet

Postby Willbrew » Wed Jan 16, 2002 7:57 pm

I read this a little while ago and wondered what exactly I could use to keep the ink from running. And ideas?

Hobby & Craft Sealers

Postby BillyBock » Thu Jan 17, 2002 1:51 am

I recently went through this on the Holiday beers I made. I went down to the hobby/craft section in Walmart and bought some all-purpose sealer from Delta Ceramcoat. I would've used the spray version of the sealer; however, it's too cold outside for it to dry adequately. If you use the brush on stuff, don't let the brush get dry because it'll smear some of the ink--keep plenty of sealer on it at all times. It took some practice but I got the hang of it. Use a wide brush, get a glob of sealer on there, spread it around, let it dry, and you're in business. Good luck.
