Gamblin Relief Inks are formulated for all relief techniques, including woodblock, linocut, monotype and Solarplate. They contain the right amount of stiffness and tack to hold fine detail yet spread evenly on the block or plate. The palette of colors is designed to give artists intense pure pigmented colors straight from the jar, along with a wide range of color-mixing capabilities. Monotype printmaking, the most painterly of printmaking techniques, is very popular. While most painters and printmakers working in this process learn how to make any kind of ink work, the unique viscosity and tack of Gamblin Relief Inks makes them ideal for monotype printing processes.
