countering the confusion of consumer packaged goods


A technique for evaluating an ink mix. It is used as a basic test to determine the accuracy of colour, the compatibility of the various inks when combined, the performance of the ink on a substrate, and the drying characteristics of the ink.

A draw-down is performed by spreading a layer of the ink mix onto the desired substrate, using a smooth-edged knife.
