the createx colors. Go for about 8.5. But, you can experiment. Anywhere
from 6 to 9. Whatever gives you the best results and stops the black from
being grainy...remember about adding some of the deep blue to the black for
better color saturation. The hardness of your water will also make a
difference. Also, be sure that the temperature of your pigments is the same
as the methyl cel mix...or pretty close. Old methyl cel will also cause the
black to break up and be grainy.

- Usually a red turning pink when you print is because the color is heavier
than the water. Thin it out or dispersant added may help keep more of the
true color afloat....especially true of cad.reds. High specific gravity.
Just my humble experience. Learned the hard way :-(
I have also had trouble with Createx.
