    Default Speedball doesn't have a Process Black?

    Hi everyone!

    I'm getting ready to do my first process print and I was over on diesel fuel getting ready to order the inks. It looks like Speedball doesn't do a process black? Do they just expect you to add a lot of trans. base to their acrylic black?

    TW 5000. Speedball has that chalky look that I just can't stand, and it scuffs. TW costs more, but it is a far superior ink.

    Truth! At least as far as black is concerned. Scuffs like a mickeyfickey. Especially bad for large floods of color. We've tried out Union ink for black and that stuff is awesome.

    I have no problem with the other colors though.

    Hmmm... I guess I never payed that close attention... I'm wondering if they carry other water-based where I buy my speedball and since I'll be headed there shortly I'll have a look.
