One other consideration, in the sequencing of the way you lay down
colors (an after thought), is the tack of the ink. The first color
down should have more tack than the next. Difficult in that the
lighter colors, which need to be laid down first are generally those
with the less tack. It's not all that hard to alter viscosity but a
slight problem since the black is the last to be printed and is
usually a stiffer ink...
