Update: I made great ink buy mixing Reeves brand gauche (pronaunced gwash) paint (you can get a set of 18 colors at AC Moore for $10) with equal parts prang tempra (I used metallic tempra cuz it's pretty, looks like glimmer mist) just a dab of each on a ceramic tile, rool over it with a brayer until it is well mixed and roll onto the letterpress plate. It's divine and super cheap compared with the letterpress ink that is $6 a tube! I got the prang tempra paint at the Dollar Tree! I'm having so much fun experimenting! I tried to make some printing plates with hot glue tonight but it did not work, hard plastic seems to be the way to go, I'll keep experimenting though
