Inked, Inker (Artist)
Japanese ink is made from pine soot and vegetable oils and molded into a stick. To create ink for calligraphy or a painting, the artist grinds the stick on an ink stone and dilutes the resulting powder with water.
the ink used in print is oil rather than water based. It is made by grinding lamp black very finely and mixing the result with oil. Intaglio ink requires more oil than relief. Lithographic oil must contain grease so as to be resistant to water. Many different fluids are suitable for screenprinting: the only requirement is for an ink that will pass through the screen mesh- one reason why screenprints can look so different from other forms of print.
A villainous compound of tannogallate of iron, gum-arabic and water, chiefly used to facilitate the infection of idiocy and promote intellectual crime. The properties of ink are peculiar and contradictory: it may be used to make reputations and unmake them; to blacken them and to make them white; but it is most generally and acceptably employed as a mortar to bind together the stones of an edifice of fame, and as a whitewash to conceal afterward the rascal quality of the material. There are men called journalists who have established ink baths which some persons pay money to get into, others to get out of. Not infrequently it occurs that a person who has paid to get in pays twice as much to get out.
To put ink upon; to supply with ink; to blacken, color, or daub with ink.
