Thank you Hellena, your message was helpful.

I can see that there's 292 Napthol Crimson with a
better lightfastness rating. What can you say about
it? Did you tried it? May I substitute Acra Violet
with this one - just to add some more permanency to my
prints? And, a) when do you print black and b) why? a)
As black is not transparent I think you coat the black
layer first is it right? b) What if I omit black (just
like tricolor gum practitioners)?

I purchased 8oz daler-rowney system 3 payne's gray and
an additive to thin acrylic paint (on the bottle it
says it's designed for airbrush or watercolor
techniques - it's pebeo's acrylic diffuser). Will try
to liquify the paint with this additive (to be able to
measure with a syringe) and print mono this weekend.
Will order liquitex (from the US) later...
