Thanks for the warning Christina. I recently purchased few iron-oxide
powder pigments (for a song - these aren't extra fine grounded artist
grade pigments, they're used for making exterior paint...), and will
start to print soon. I presume the coarse pigments will give me quite
grainy results, but that's exactly what I'm after. I'll print big
(30x40cm minimum, up to 50x60cm) therefore it doesn't matter much.

I want a similar look to Kim Soo-Kang's works:
