Use the Pantone Color Guide For Screen Printers it gives the formulas for ink and works great as a starting point. ALWAYS start with the lightest color of ink and ad the darker colors slowly! It's much easier to get ink darker than it is to lighten it up. And I would use the Pantone coated color set since it is closer to the glossy nature of plastisol inks. And plastisol, definitely.
