watercolor inks

Thin, semi-transparent inks that contain no oils, and which are used when printing in colors from a rubber surface. As they remain water soluble, even after printing, they cannot be used where inadvertent wetting may occur, nor can papers printed with them be washed or deacidified by means of aqueous systems.
