Ink for painting then printing
Hello, I'm painting an image on acetate to print on Hosho paper. Gradually building up the image. It's working well, except the ink is very thick. I'm using Caligo safewash black. I'm adding Safewash Oil and Extender but it doesn't thin as much as I would like and it affects transparency/ oiliness. Which makes it very slow to dry and glossy.
1 wondered if there is a brand of ink I could use which is more fluid? I do like the soap and water cleanup.
2 Or is it ok to dilute Safewash with water to paint with?
Thanks in advance for any ideas/help
