Comments about Eco-House 921 Cozica Drier Blend:
So far, we've tested with Akua black intaglio ink, which is supposed to contain a hardening oil derived from soy. Eco House 921 Drier Blend is said to contain cobalt fatty acid salts and other siccatives. In only one test we dissolved 4 drops of the product in acetone and bathed a small print with the solution. The acetone evaporated, leaving a very thin coat of the Eco House on the print. The ink has shown no signs of drying in the 14 days. Next test will be more realistic: Pre-mixing the "catalyst" with the ink. We'll also try it with raw linseed oil, which we *know* to be a hardening oil. Thus, we cannot honestly respond at your Bottom Line. Since your prog insists, we'll say No.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Soy is a non-drying oil. Akua Inks dry mainly through absorption into the substrate. This particular drying agent is designed for use with Linseed/Stand Oil. The typical method of use is to mix a small amount with the ink prior to printing not exceeding 2% the volume of linseed oil.
