WHY LIL TUFFY JOINED THE POSSE

The opportunity to create a signature ink and print live on front of more audiences with the Print Posse is very exciting. I already extensively tour the US and Europe to exhibit my work and any chance to grow those experiences and share the screen printing process with fans new and old is always positive! I look forward to working with Speedball and meeting new people!

Lil Tuffy’s Limited Edition Posse Acrylic Screen Printing Ink, “TUFFY ROSÉ”

“I use this color to create a softer, pastel red/rose to compliment deep browns and light blues. It’s great for muted, southwestern color palettes.”
