WHY MELANIE JOINED THE SPEEDBALL DEMO ARTIST PROGRAM
I have worked with Speedball products since 1984 when I was in high school and have continued to this day. I love the way in which Speedball is always ready to reach out to the everyday artist with its materials. They are earth friendly and it is always one of the things that has kept me using their screenprinting acrylic inks over all these years.

- Screen Printing
I love the Speedball Acrylic Screen Printing Inks and the Arnhem paper. The inks are earth-friendly and it is always one of the things that has kept me using them all these years. The Arnhem paper is a strong paper that is cost-friendly to my students and performs in such an excellent way. Both these two products are my favorites. I use many of the screen printing items. I feel that they are what I use on a regular basis in my own studio as well.
