Creating a substitute For Faust Transparent Base Extender Q699

In this series of experiments we were trying to find a comparable substitute for the very popular and no longer commercially available Faust Transparent Base Extender Q699. We worked to develop a transparent base of similar tack and viscosity by modifying currently available transparent bases with plate oil and simple modifiers. In our research we succeeded in creating our own transparent base using simple and easily obtained ingredients.

Our formula for Transparent Base has been purchased by Hanco Inks and they are manufacturing it in their factory.  It is for sale through Takach Press.
