I am very pleased with these block print inks.

Comments about Blick Water-Soluble Block Printing Inks:
I purchased a number of colors for the Art 1 and Art 2 classes that I teach in a high school. I was pleased with the application of colors and the consistency of the ink during last year's printing projects. I did, however, notice that the orange and yellow are watered down a bit (nothing like the black, red, blue, or gold). At any rate, I decided to purchase white because I wanted my students to be able to layer the colors and print light over dark. This did the trick! The use of white as a base with all of the other Blick water soluble inks produces beautiful color combinations. The only negative thing I can say about these inks is the feel of the surface after they have dried, but I have found that the application of ink is much smoother when using good paper.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good for the price!
By L. Canfield

I am currently using these inks to teach my students about relief printing. I have noticed that it is more "goopy" than i'd like. Because it's so goopy/ wet doesn't always print the best, but it's great for introducing students into printmaking!

Great inks at a great price
from Bakersfield, CA
These are great for block printing and mono printing. I haven't used them for much else but they are perfect for classroom-use. Mix very well too.

I find that since the students who are using the ink see the viscosity, the are more deliberate with the ink in a jar vs. in a tube. The can control the amount that is used, as well as painting their blocks. I've discovered that printmaking ink is more economical in jar.
Best price and Quick Shipping
By TMS Curator
from Texarkana, Texas
My two local art suppliers did not have the quantity I needed in stock, so I ordered several tubes of the water-soluble ink for a special student activity focused on printing techniques. I ordered very close to the event date, but the box arrived after only three days! The price (plus shipping) was about the same as purchasing in-store, so it was a good value as well. The ink worked perfectly for what we were doing with the kids, which included a variety of very different print processes. We were using using old typeset machines, carved linoleum blocks, etc. and the ink worked well for all of these. Easy cleanup, too.
I have used this product many times for block printing.

I use this ink with my students when they do their block printing project. It works beautifully and clean-up is easy (water-soluble).
