Re: oilprint second try
For bromoil I'm also using litho inks (charbonel, G&C) and sometimes the non-coloured G&C extender with added powder pigments. I asked this question to know if an oilprint in your opinion, needs the same stiff inks as a bromoil. So your answer is: yes it does. As a listlurker from 'the old days' I had allready seen and printed Klaus Pollmeier's receipe - and wondered if the, maybe more fragile, gelatin of an oilprint indeed needed some little pre-hardening. I noticed that the non-hardened highlight parts in my gelatin layer sometimes don't support heavy inking resulting is a stained paper base in the highlights. So you probably are a carefull 'hopper'.
Have you been to eurobrom in Brussels this weekend?

The advantage of Faust and Charbonnel was the fact that they offer tubes (ink drying out in cans is a problem).Hi Henk, great oilprint! what inks do you use?
