Gamblin Magnesium Carbonate

Traditionally used to stiffen ink, Magnesium Carbonate can be used to reduce the gloss level of ink. When added to ink it becomes transparent - there will be no alteration of colour of the ink.

We recommend that you add Magensium Carbonate in small amounts - only a little is needed to add body to an ink.

Magnesium Carbonate can be used with both Etching and Relief Inks.

Mix well and keep away from excessive heat.
