Gamblin Ink Modifiers

Depending on the printmaking technique, Gamblin Inks may need to be adjusted slightly with a modifier in order to print perfectly. Temperature, humidity, the type of plate, and the type of paper all affect how inks perform.

Burnt Plate Oil #000 — Burnt Plate Oils can be used to make inks more viscous. They should be added sparingly, as the detail of a print might be lost if the ink becomes too fluid. Gamblin Burnt Plate Oil #000 has less tack and is a good match for use with Gamblin Relief Inks.

Burnt Plate Oil #2 — Burnt Plate Oils are used to make inks more viscous. They should be added to inks sparingly, as the detail of a print may be lost if the ink becomes too fluid. The primary oil binder for Gamblin Etching Inks, Burnt Plate Oil #2 has a higher tack than Burnt Plate Oil #000.

Magnesium Carbonate — Magnesium Carbonate is traditionally used to stiffen inks and reduce their gloss level. It works well with both Gamblin Etching Inks and Gamblin Artist's Colors Relief Inks. Once combined, it becomes transparent and will not alter the color of the ink. Only a small amount is needed to increase body, so add it sparingly and mix well.

Tack Reducer — Tack Reducer is a gel made from a very light drying oil. Because it is transparent, it does not alter the color intensity of the ink. Add it in small amounts to efficiently reduce tack.
