Gold ink

In my various letterpress adventures I’ve been trying out some different inks and paper combinations.

I have a ‘standard’ forme I use for testing the papers and inks…which I’m sure you’ll see popping up as I experiment.

One of the inks I’ve really liked so far is this metallic mid gold

It’s particularly good on red paper
