Sharks Velvet Black Litho Ink Recipe This is a formula that Bud Shark @ Shark's Ink has used with good success to replace the discontinued Daniel Smiths Velvet Black Litho Ink. When printed this mixture results in a rich, dense black. On ink slab mix a ratio of:
1/3 Charbonnel Black Velvet Litho Ink
2/3 Hanco Crayon Black BK-1015 Litho Ink
Add a drop or 2 of Hanco TU-Way Drier MS-1014 to speed drying time and eliminate bronzing.
Unused ink with drier may be stored in aluminum foil for 1-2 weeks.
