Intaglio Etching Ink – Black 55985 is a very dense black intaglio ink used to enhance other blacks. It is made from a mixture of ivory & carbon black and prussian blue.
This very deep, slightly blue black etching ink is used to strengthen other blacks.
The ink is highly viscous and on its own, can be challenging to wipe.
