I'll be teaching an evening 8 wk monoprint class soon, and am wondering if
any of you have tried the Crizmac monoprint inks. I've always used regular
relief/etching in myself, and with easywipe added it gives about four hours
of open time. Or, with the plate sanded, watercolor is fine too.
But...I thought I might use this opportunity to test Crizmac in case I ever
have the chance to to monoprint in a regular classroom setting. But if y'all
say they're awful, I won't. I suspect they are simple water base paints with
a retardant. Comments? suggestions?

Also, anybody have a clever idea for what I can call the class? Nobody knows
what monoprints are here.
