DANIEL SMITH Oil-Based Relief Inks are professional quality inks for woodblock, linoleum, and intaglio relief printing.
They are smooth and creamy, yielding crisp prints with a press or by hand. To reduce tack, which may be desirable for hand printing, add a small amount of Daniel Smith Miracle Gel Reducer.
We add no drier to most of the colors, and less than .01% to a few ink applications can take up to seven days to dry, depending on the environmental conditions in your studio. For faster drying, you may add a small amount - no more than 5% by volume - of Cobalt Drier.
Each of the 22 colors are made with pure burnt plate oil and the finest pigments. Transparencies can be made by adding our Transparent Medium.
