Abstract : Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris
This study investigates the potential of Plaster of Paris (POP) as an alternative medium for producing water-based  screen printing ink. The project is based on the concept  of aesthetic experimental to explore different types of  print characteristics for instance, consistency,  workability, colour densities, and impression qualities.  Evaluation measures including medium particle size using  Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopy (FE-SEM)  testing, microstructural and chemical composition  analysis using Scanning Electron Microscope-Energy  Dispersive Spectrometer (SEM-EDS), and toxicity analysis  using Inductively Coupled Plasma Optimal Emission  Spectrometer (ICPOES). The results showed that the  formulated medium has a unique property and provided  opportunities in creating different types of luminosity  and opacity effects. It also created unique print  characteristics which capable to derive a huge aesthetic  potential within the context of ideas development,  concept and creativity specifically for fine artists and  designers.
