Tack Reducer is a gel made from a very light drying oil, making it completely compatible with the inks. Small amounts added to ink will efficiently reduce tack. Tack Reducer is transparent to allow the intensity of an inks color to be maintained. MSDS
Gamblin Ink Modifiers
Depending on the printmaking technique, the inks may need to be adjusted slightly with one of our modifiers in order to print perfectly. Temperature and humidity, the type of plate, and type of paper all affect how inks perform.
Our goal is to advance printmaking by providing artists with materials that offer traditional working properties while improving studio safety.
Artists’ studios are immediately safer when artists remove strong solvents, especially turpentine, from their artistic processes. None of our materials require the use of strong solvents. Gamsol odorless mineral spirit is the choice for studio safety in the traditional printmaking studio using oil-based inks.
