Hey all,

Curious George here, i wonder would it be wise or even possible to shoot india ink from a AB ?

Im thinking yes since its thin and its water soluble, but im still new to this so i wouldn't be surprised if i am incorrect :)

Thanks in advance
 
Yes you can, but be aware that some pigmented ones may be toxic without a mask. I believe some windor newton will say that on their bottles in a set. Also some may actually have solvents like alcohol. Cleanup may need alcohol. Pigments are not generally lightfast. Black india ink comes in a wide variety , higgins has a more waterproof one.

Ok thanks a bunch :) Well i always use a mask with coalfilter no matter what so i should be safe !

And thanks for the suggestion on Higgins ill have alook at that one as well.
 
It is a good way to practice and get very light layers. Just read all warning labels.
