I found that the paper dried quickly so used a spray bottle of water to encourage the colour to move when necessary.Printing with ink and other projects - image 7 - student project I have a subscription to Artful box which sends out a box of supplies to allow you to try different media. The last box was linocutting and the December box is ink. I have never used ink before although I really enjoy watercolour. It’s definitely not as easy as it looks and I am very happy to have constructive criticism of my efforts as I would like to improve what I do. Any tips on how to avoid ink smudges would be great.
