Riso Printing* 

The Risograph is a digital printer that uses soy oil or a rice bran liquid based emulsion ink to produce an effect similar to screen printing. It prints one color at a time and produces a 'master' for each color and the semi-transparent layers produce a multi-colored print. Color choices: Red, blue, yellow, green, fluorescent pink, black.
