Gisela, I got my silver ink from Graphic Chemicals. I ordered it from a catalog. I've never looked for them online, but they have a wonderful array of printmaking supplies and inks. The silver is a bit thinner than other inks, so I put a thickening agent into it to stiffen it up a bit. For the life of me I can't remember what I used though. Back to the book.......lol

I really like this Sassy and would like to know more about the process of it's creation.
Would you please explain reduction?

leaflin, I'll do even better. I'll work on a little lesson of that technique if my press ever gets here, because I would like to show photos of each step. This is one technique that I have worked hard in becoming proficient at.
