I came new to printmaking just before Christmas as a way of creating art (which I regularly do) which was more affordable for buyers. My style of art lends itself perfectly.Against the advice of printmakers generally, who say you shouldn't hand paint images in (why not? Apparently water interacts with the ink somehow over time. And yet there are very commercial printers who do just this!)My view is it is snobbery?Anyway, I wanted an ink to do two things: be water-soluble for cleaning and environmental and health reasons (kids in the house); and dry to belong water resistant so that I can apply watercolour quickly, which fits my artistic style.This is the only ink I could find marked as such. I phoned jacksons and they were good enough to give me good advice.In practice, the ink is dry enough for water colour washes after about a week to 10 days. Surprisingly, the better quality the paper, after tests, the less re soluble the ink becomes. One thing to note is that the watercolour runs away from the black line....I suspect that the oil from the ink is drawn into the surrounding paper....or whatever it is used as a carrier agent for the pigment. I little working in, however, and that issue is quickly overcome.In about 4 days, if you are interested, you can actually paint up to the edge of the ink with gouache, or intense pencils, and you get no runs.Be careful about rewetting paper and ink once painted though...it looks like it needs another long drying time otherwise you do get some bleeding.After Xmas I bought some daler and rowney ink, and it just doesn't compare! The D&R ended up very globby at the corners, and dried with a rough texture. The linol is smooth, and whilst it builds up in crevices (I suspect my learning technique as opposed to the ink quality!) there is no globbing. A quick run through the press (I use my wife's cricut machine, better than a spoon!) with some very absorbent paper and it's ready to go again.Linol Ink (with watercolour ) works best on cartridge paper. Lighter papers are really nice, I had some italian knocking around. If you are going to hand colour by hand it's a balance between light weight paper for good printing, and something that won't buckle really badly in water. Keep your washes simple, and don't do wet in wet and over saturate the paper, and look for cartridge paper specifically marked for watercolour. (Posted on 20/08/2015)
