Yes, use very little pressure and very little ink. Consider, also, adding some drier into your ink mix. As glassine will not absorb the ink it will need to dry by air/oxidation only. Count on it being slow to cure at any rate. Oh, and you may need to use slip sheets between each print. Good luck!


Use Van Son Tough Tex Ink. Dries by Evaporation. But, don’t leave it idle on the press for ANY length of time.
