I had a hard time w/ the metallic inks too. I think they are meant to give “accents” but aren’t opague enough to work for text or detail.  I mixed two colors (the gold and a maroon) to get the sheen I wanted while still being dark enough to be readable on one of my projects.

Good luck!

I’m really not sure what might be up… other than you have some strange metallic paint? I routinely use gold/silver/etc. with my gocco (mostly fine detail work) and have never had an issue with it not coming through the screen. I always use foam blocker, and lay on a thick coat of it…

Sorry I couldn’t be of more help? 🙁

I always pressed a little harder in the areas with metallic ink. It seems a lot thicker then regular ink so I guess more pressure helped!

Yes, I had that problem too after the ink was already on the screen. Take some of the gocco cleaner (the tubed stuff) and wipe your gold ink areas very well (get the surface clean again, not streaky with residual ink), let dry for one minute. Then, start printing away! The cleaner acts like a paint thinner. The gold clogged for me too, but once you do this step, the gold looks great!
