Decision made; I went with the Paynes Gray ink. The soft blue gray works well with the subject matter.
The plates were printing well and in about an hour and a half I had a dozen prints pulled. I want to keep the momentum going but it looks like I'm going to run out of ink. I had one of those small 2 ounce sample jars of ink and I looks like I may get another 10 prints before I'm scraping bottom.
What's that adage about "prior proper planning".
