Wonderful! Coincidentally, I'm working on a linocut of the aurora myself (though I have a very different plan for the light).

I would love to get my hands on some interference ink. I haven't found a Canadian supplier.

I would be happy to send you some, if you would like! Do you think it would go through customs? A little goes a long way and I don't mind sharing. Just let me know!

Oh! and I should say I purchased the powder and created my own ink by using acrylic matte medium.
