On its own, oil painting colour is unsuitable for block printing. However, mixing an oil paint with Adigraf Oil Block Printing Medium creates an oil-based ink that can be block printed in the traditional way.
For solid colours blend 3 parts Adigraf Medium with 2 parts oil paint. For more transparent colour - perhaps for overprints - increase the proportion of Adigraf medium.
As oil-based inks take longer to dry than water-based inks, prints should be allowed to dry overnight before any further treatment (including overprints).
This product replaces the Georgian Oil Block Printing Medium which has been discontinued.
