- the van son 'unipak' metallics in kilo cans are well worth the $50 prices.
van son also sells 871 & 877 in pound cans.
all are oil based. you can however mix rubberbased colors into the oil
metallics without incident in order to mix tinted metallics. have done it
here's a link to an old post to letpress on how to preserve your kilo can
investment, or any oil based ink for that matter.
as was mentioned, oil based inks will not dry over lunch but will dry
overnight. anti skin will help keep them open, but as Gerald mentions, a
wash-up isn't a bad idea
by the way, the van son anti skin #2001 in the pump bottle is the best.
aerosols blow and you'll end up breathing many more voc's.
