CTI inks

October 6, 2008

I spoke with, Mike Bonatti, a rep from CTI Inks in Colorado Springs today about my project. He answered a few of my questions about their products and to help me select a sample pigment to build some prototypes with. I selected a silkscreen pigment that changes from blue to clear when the material reaches 31 degrees C. This threshold should be appropriate since it is warmer that room temperature but will not need to be heated too much. It is a concern that the heating of the fabric could potentially burn the quilt.
