Gamblin Relief Ink and Modifiers
Gamblin Relief Ink colors are available in 175ml cans (6.5 fluid ounces).
These inks are heavily pigmented. To extend the ink or make it more transparent, add pigmented ink to Gamblin Relief Ink Transparent Base.
Depending on the technique, temperature, humidity, paper and type of plate, all inks may need slight adjustments to print perfectly. Add small amounts of these modifiers into the ink and mix well before adding more.
To thin relief ink so it spreads easily, add Gamblin #000 Burnt Plate Oil. Add sparingly; details may be lost if the ink becomes too fluid. Tack Reducer is a transparent gel made from a very light drying oil. Small amounts added to the ink will reduce tack so the ink spreads out more readily and evenly. Gamblin Magnesium Carbonate stiffens the ink and reduces the ink's gloss level.
Portland Intense Black is just that - intense. When you are mixing colors, add it in very tiny amounts. It is easy to overdo it.
PNCA (Pacific Northwest College of Art) in Portland, Oregon worked with Gamblin to create a limited edition recycled ink. The mix of recycled pigments is different with each batch, so Watershed Grey is always unique and never repeated. When it's gone, it's gone until the next batch is made. This year's Watershed Grey is a very dark grey.
The colors shown below may be affected by your monitor settings and are intended to be used as a guide only.
