I completed a set of 10 printed b/w zines for PaperGirl’s London call out this week.

Having a few spare prints left over I thought I would try out some of the Pebeo  Colorex water based ink I brought for some large drawings I’m planning.

I hadn’t used Pebeo inks before (usually using Windsor and Newton or chinese black calligraphy ink), and found the pigment quality excellent when both diluted and undiluted . They mix and over paint beautifully too. They are water soluble and do not contain shellac as Windsor and Newton inks do and so behave more like water colour when over painting.

On Friday my first copy of   The Blue Note Book (April 2012)(edited by Sarah Bodman) a bi-annual publication from Book Arts at the Centre for Fine Print Research (CFPR) arrived.
