Hi Mary
I have just looked in my book, ”British prints from the machine age 1914-1937” published by Thames and Hudson in 2008.
Rachel Mustalish discusses the materials and techniques of the Grosvenor School on page 196...Flight apparently rejected watercolour or pigment mixed with rice glue and the School used printing ink or oil paint..but then she mentions that some used both.
That does not really answer your question, but may help.
The book incidentally is worth reading and is full of colour print illustrations.
Regards to all.

Bonnie, I made some prints with a many different papers, and they all got a halo around the ink. I was using intaglio Akua. Next I will try Akua with stiffener and see what happens. I don't think it is your paper though, I think its the ink.

Maria -
Hooray! My City of The World prints finally arrived Tuesday
- I was chagrined last week to hear it got to the UK before
your neighbour to the North -Canada Post is seriously lacking.

Thanks once more to Mayor Maria and printing friends plus
all the contributors - you did a marvelous job! I don't have
a space to hang it but luckily my daughter was here
yesterday and asked if she could frame and hang the 5 panels
in her long hallway - she and my young grandson were
enthralled by this great ouevre!
best to all

 I appreciate the information. I had wondered if they used oil's much lighter than the printing ink. I will look into getting a copy of the book.

Thank you!

Subject: colophon coupon!!!!

I just ordered the City of the World book from LuLu and I discovered that
there is a coupon code that works on it!!! If you enter the code MAYBOOKS12
it will take an additional 20%off, which in the end was like getting the
shipping for free! So I thought I would let you know in case any of the
citizens want the actual beautiful book edition and would like to save a few
bucks!!! Hope all is well!!!! The prints came out so epic and beautiful they

OK, we've had our breakthrough! After finishing up the varnishing work on the current batch of cases, and after the ladies had a chance to get them all out of the way of the dust and dirt we would be raising, we got the dividing wall broken down yesterday!

Lee-san began by scoring some lines in the wall with a masonry cutter:
