Artist Statement

My first favorite Speedball product is Speedball Super Black India Ink and nibs. I use Speedball Super Black India Ink for all my drawing and ink washes and sketches in preparation for prints. TheSpeedball Super Black India Ink works amazing on polyester plates for polyester photography. I have tried other inks but the Super Black stays on the plate for the best reproduction.

Recently, I've started using the Speedball of Supergraphic Black Relief Ink, and I am a big fan. The Supergraphic Black Relief Ink rolls out wonderfully, has a great pigment load, prints very densely, and dries extremely quickly.

My new favorite Speedball product is [Best Test] Paper Cement. I use it for collage and Chine-collé, it doesn't wrinkle the fine washi paper that I use and the paper cement is very easy to work with consistently produces excellent work.

I have also been using the Speedball Acrylic Screen Printing Inks for years. There's never been a water-based screen printing ink that is more versatile and easier to work with then the Speedball Water-Based Screen Printing inks.
