0 to 100 project Testing INK

Doug Laxdal of the has created a ink just for printing of the 0 to 100 project book.

Its is a gold yellow ink made for the skin tones and background in the images.

Doug is way more than a retoucher and master seporator of files. He also has created his own type of inks, the inks are a little like metalic inks but more subtle. They have shiny flakes suspended in the ink that reflect the light and make the inks sparkle and pop.

The inks work a little like the glass beads suspened in paint on road markings. He mixes the color and tone depending on the digital files, Very old world meets new.

A huge thanks to Rich of who works with us on making unorthodox ideas work.
