The ink offers solvent and oil free clean up of rollers, blocks and palette with non-toxic wipes for clean oil free surfaces and a healthier studio environment.
The Pigments Pastes
The pigment pastes are stable, light-fast and non-toxic. Using the high strength pigments to tint the transparent base ink, an artist can create an endless array of colors.
The pigment emulsions will mix safely into either oil or water- based mediums, which means they can be added to rice paste for moku hanga or oil-based Evergreen Inks.
Benefits Of Use
The transparent inks can easily be tinted with a dry pigment for a more opaque result. The dry pigment is mulled into the ink base in small quantities to supplement the pigment pastes. Caution must be used when working with a dry pigment.
