Blick block printing ink
from denver, co
Comments about Blick Water-Soluble Block Printing Inks:
good for inexperienced students because cleanup is manageable. use with retarder, otherwise must work quickly. Difficult to keep inking slab free from particles which create unsightly white spots in the print. Oil base eliminates this discrepancy but cleanup in a small space makes oil base inks difficult to proof images.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Pretty colors that mix well.
from Baltimore, MD
I'm been using this ink to print a series and they print well, stay moist for a while, and the color is vibrant. Easy to clean up too!

Will Reorder, Always Kept on Hand
By Moon Shines Brightly
I love most of the Blick Water-Soluble Block Printing Inks. The only reason for four stars instead of five is because of the blue block print ink. It is always super thick, even when brand new, which is a minor annoyance. The work-around for this for me and my students is to fill a new brown glass apothecary dropper bottle with purified water and drop a few drops on the ink when the ink is placed on the platen. Mix the water with the ink using a sturdy wooden toothpick and the problem is solved.
Great inks make great prints!
from Pittsburgh PA
These block printing inks are great quality for school use and have unusual colors that can make projects extra special! I always order some white so kids can mix and create tints. The Magenta/pink really packs a punch and is worth buying since the pink you get with the red and white lacks intensity.
My students love your ink! It makes printmaking easy and fun
By Mrs. B
from Cedar Falls, Iowa
I teach art in grades K-6 and every class gets to do printmaking.Students love to make prints and are very interested in the history of printmaking. We use the regular ink as well as fabric ink.Good Brayers are important. The ones that snap away for easy cleaning snap away in the ink sometimes. Your more expensive brayers are our favorites.
Excellent printing supplies
By Spinner man
from Hastings Minnesota
I just recently got into block printing and I live in art supply desert so it's much cheaper for me to order things by mail them to drive to the nearest art supply store and Blick has everything I need
Excellent service and materials
from Martin, TN
I have always ordered from Dick Blick. The delivery is fast and the materials are of high quality. I am a painter and like the consistency of the oils and acrylics in particular.
Good for kids
from San Pedro, CA
I use it with elementary students. It's not quite as smooth as speedball but it's great for children.
Great paper for student printing
My high school students use this and we are very happy with the quality.
great bright colors and good consistency
By dada studio
from Fallon, NV
These inks are perfect for my high school art students just starting out in printmaking. The colors are bright and vivid (which they love) and opaque enough to layers lighter colors on dark. I like the consistency for beginners because they are thick to give an even coating on the printing blocks and can be thinned with water if a creamier consistency is desired.
