shouldhaveswipedleft-blog asked: Dear Tony, I’m just starting out with this process and want to begin with single color (black or sepia colored) prints before moving on to full CMYK. Do you have a preference in pigment for single color prints? Thanks!
I haven’t done much single color printing but have always had good results with the Schmincke brand of watercolors. You may try the Burnt Sienna for a sepia.
