Overall Experience

Was this review helpful?

Quality How would you describe the quality of this product? This product has been on the market for a while now and the quality is outstanding. Performance How did this product perform compared to your expectations? The liquid and intaglio inks are compatible and clean up with soap and water. The intaglio ink has a soy oil base so it handles nearly the same as regular intaglio inks. These inks can stay out and open all day in a classroom setting and they won't scum or dry out. The drying process happens on the paper, not on the inking up plate. Use How did you use this product? I would use both the liquid and intaglio when doing mono prints. They have different mediums to further manipulate these inks. The intaglio is perfect for solar plate and regular intaglio techniques. Value Was this product true to its value? It is pricey, but when you consider how fast other water base inks dry or scum over and what you waste from that, these are actually an equal or a better value. Overall Experience What was your overall experience with this product? There really isn't a better product on the market. You get what you pay for.
