Re: 1160 and MIS arc inks (was "1160 & Archiva")



<x-charset iso-8859-1>I saw your post, Holland, about the exhaust bag test.  Thanks.  I hope this
translates into a somewhat easy solution.  The MIS arc inks on Ilford Glossy
are *exactly* what I want, and spraying with Krylon 1303 does seem to set
the image and make it handle-able.  Plus, as Rafe noted, MIS arc inks are
relatively cheap -- not even the price of two changes of carts for a set of
4 oz. bottles.

But I don't like to have to spray.  And the XG inks are not that much more.
