Soy Based ink vs. Linseed Oil based ink

From what I can tell both soy and linseed are natural oils that can be used in the printing process. I wasn't able to gather much research on the exact ingredients of soy based ink. Both are oil based products but not in the petroleum oil sense. They are natural by-products.

Something to think about as I continue to print.


  1. any idea where one can buy these oils?

  2. The Recycled Paper Printing can also be used in order to overcome the difficulties as paper is manufactured from the bamboo plant and hence the plant has to be cut off.
