1. Mix the three process colours in varying proportions to create a spectrum of bright colour mixes of your own. You will find you can make a much wider range of greens, purples, blues, reds and oranges than you can achieve with a standard blue, red and yellow ink. Use white and black and extender to make an even wider range of tints and shades.
2. Over printing layers of these inks to create new colours where the transparent coloured layers overlap.
3. For printmakers who need a four colour process set (CMYK) to create prints with multiple plates.
(Depending on ink film thickness , you can adjust strength with extender as required)
