My favorite place for inking —the glass counter.
I have a fabulous glass counter that I use for mixing inks and inking my linos or blocks it's 9 feet long to accomodate a number of colors or mixes. It's easy to clean up too. I purchased two new inks Graphite and Paynes Gray. I have an idea brewing.
I decided that I had just enough time before I left the studio to do draw-downs to sample the ink on white.
You see them while still wet.
