Places like Brooklyn's Gowanus Print Lab are totally happy to help you out (i.e. do it for you). We had fun experimenting with mixing the inks. Working with black, silver and gold ink, we watched them work their magic and overlap to create beautiful textures unachievable with any other medium.
Don't forget to cure your ink. Heat setting with an iron is essential to guarantee the ink will not wash off.
