Gamblin Relief Inks are formulated for all relief techniques, including woodblock, linocut, monotype and Solarplate. These ink are bound in the highest quality Burnt Plate Oil, allowing their formula to showcase just the right amount of stiffness and tack to hold fine detail, yet spread evenly on the block or plate.
Gamblin's palette of colors is designed to give artists intense, pure pigmented, colors straight from the jar, along with a wide range of color-mixing capabilities.
Monotype printmaking, the most painterly of printmaking techniques, is a very popular use of Gamblins Relief Inks. While most painters and printmakers working in this process learn how to make any ink work, the unique viscosity and tack of Gamblin Relief Inks makes them ideal for monotype printing processes.
