Welcome to dickblick
These high-quality, waterbased linoprint inks from Schmincke are easy to apply because of optimal open times. Aqua Linoprint Inks create sharp prints that dry quickly, becoming wipe-resistant after approximately 15 minutes.
The line includes 15 brilliant shades as well as three metallic colors. Manufactured with natural binders such as gum arabic, as well as organic and inorganic pigments, Aqua Linoprint Inks offer maximum lightfastness and excellent intensity (especially Ivory Black).
Because of their smooth, fluid consistency, Schmincke Aqua Linoprint colors can easily be applied on a variety of surfaces such as paper, felt, and cardboard. They are also suitable for wood engraving.
All colors are highly intermixable and can be diluted with water. Colors can be overprinted with other colors. Printing blocks and working tools are easy to clean up with water.

Just beginning to work with these
First of all, these are small containers compared with other block printing inks I have used. The price is a bit high for the quantity. So far I have tried the silver ink. It works well and clean up is really easy. The fumes aren't too bad either. I will have to try some of the other colors to see how they work.

I've only used the metallic colors; gold, silver, and copper. All have worked beautifully for me in both lino and wood block printing, with a press and with burnishing by hand. They are pretty intense on the metallic side, reflecting beautifully with light. I have used both with Graphic Chemical's water soluble vehicle and extender, as well as adding the silver to Graphic Chemical's water soluble relief colors to give them a shimmering effect.
Happy with it
from Shalimar, FL
I used with lino block. The ink is pretty thin and results in very sharp images. It takes a somewhat experienced printmaker to get the full advantage of this product. I tried these inks on several types of sheets and found out the quality of the paper plays a huge role in the quality of the print when printing with these inks. They work very well with thin japanese printmaking papers, such as kitakata. Also printed on kozo, the result was great.

Because I like Schmincke watercolors, I tried 2 of these, ultramarine and ivory black. On Blick's blue easy cut linoleum, this thin stuff does not adhere to block or cover evenly, very difficult to roll. Worse, it does adhere to the paper--a freshly inked block run through a press with modest pressure stuck to the Rives BFK so badly that it actually pulled off tufts of the paper! Only good thing about it is clean-up--it really is water soluble. After washing and drying, I reprinted the same block with same pressure and same paper using Charbonnel Aqua Wash Etching ink carbon black and got easy, even inking and beautiful rich prints. It also washes up easily.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
